The Squadron would be puuuuurrrrrrrrfect!

Puuuuurhaps. I actually dual-sport my 390 so not blinding car drivers (who can then run into you), I do care about beam patterns. It seems virtually all the dirtbike and racing based LED lights with the good LED lamps, spread their light everywhere, which is good -- but not for oncoming cars. No ideal LED based Dual-Sport moto light yet. The real design needed for road friendly is in the reflectors and very likely multiple switchable LED's per reflector. Not cheap to design.

I see the basic Squadron 3 x 3 mounts up to various metal brackets either on the front bolts or side bolts. If there's no Husaberg specific bracket for the OEM shell, aluminum is very easy to work and I could probably make it work fine. The electrical stuff is easy and the Berg has plenty of spare watts, being EFI.

Being a Jonah, Neduro and BC61 Dakar supporter I just looked and have a few handy BD coupons. so I may get one of these and have a bit of fun with it.

2 Strykers stacked, one pointing down a bit and one straight out, for hi/lo and relay switched might work too, but would cost a lot more and take more vertical room.

This is the OEM headlight mask for my 2011 Husaberg FE390.

Hey Cyborg,

Unfortunately no we have not made a Squadron kit that will fit into the stock shell of the Husaberg. I would suggest going with the polisport, the blue shell would definitely not match, but the white or the black would look really cool. The Squadron uses a very unique pattern, optics, and XML LEDs(highest quality available). It is made for off-roading so those holes, ditches, or rocks are completely visible to the rider. You will not have a problem with visibility and the color temperature does play a huge factor in the equation; it closely imitates the color of the sun at noon(5000k). If you have any questions feel free to let me know, but I believe the Squadron is ideal for the type of riding you are doing.

Thanks,

Gordon BD

We're working on a waterproof box for the PWM right now, but we should have a finished product in 10 business days.
