Has anyone assessed or installed alternative lighting to the single headlamp, such as projector lamps, LED lamps, two lamps instead of one, etc.?

Don't know about the GRiSO, but I'm a firm believer in ADDITIONAL lighting - on the V7, the Enfields and especially the 1100 Sport. Had HID spotties (fantastic) on the Enfierld V Twin till it burned up, will be replacing with LEDs (cheaper & adequate); The 1100 Sport's trapezoidal headlight is so poor, it needs the LEDs it now has (DEnali D2s), and although the V7 headlight is OK, (only OK), the LEDs (Denali D2s) wired into high beam make a huge difference when caught out at night. I like the Denali D2s, but no local source anymore, so investigating alternatives.

Anything you can do to improve your lighting on any motorcycle is confidence-inducing. A thoroughly recommended procedure.

A few months ago I saw this picture on the Moto Guzzi GRiSO facebook page.  Interesting as the headlamp has the same looks as the original.
(btw interesting colour of the bike)

I have this in Bella, Speaker is the brand, designed for current Jeeps.
Trouble is it has a definite horizontal line with bright white below and total pitch black above ...........
on both lo beam and bloody hi beam as well. No good for hard cornering at night.

At AUD$650, I think I could have done better.

I think that in keeping with the 'Agricultural' theme the owner of that poor bike has decided to kit his GRiSO out as a Grader!

The bikes shown seem to have shopped the Harley-Davidson Accessory Catalog. Thoughts on using Harley's LED headlights?

Well, it has 2 MG eagle logos on it, but it doesn't exactly look like "Italian design"...   Smile

This one has a more unusual head lamp.  I personally find it very ugly, but on this bike I REALLY like the subtle colour scheme.

I quite like the headlamp, it gives the mighty GRiSO a more modern look.

Thanks for posting that picture,bioman. I was looking at that light online but was worried
about the fit on the GRiSO. The one I like is identical, except its all mat black.
