Has anyone on here installed this headlight into their HPE GTS. Just curious how the light pattern compares to the stock headlight. Just wonder if it is an improvement as the stock LED beam pattern is a little patchy. Here are pics of my low beam and high beam.

In the video robot says you can expect the light pattern to be the same as the original. He says the main difference is the sporty visual touches to the light itself.

Those patterns are a bit strange and could be distracting. But the light throw for the high beam is impressive!

I doubt that this unit will resolve your complaint. Might be something you need to live with.

This is the unit I have, SW states it will work for 2020, but not sure for HPE

My unit is pretty bright, but the control of light and cutoff is very good. I've never had oncoming traffic "flash" me.

No, I do not. I have installed the one I linked to which is different. And I don't believe it's compatible with the newest models.

The one you originally linked is likely identical in it's performance to the OEM, and I doubt you'll have a different user experience.

Don't know about anyone else, but I love the LED headlight on my SuperTech. No issues with the beam pattern on Low or High. The irony is that I was getting close in choosing an LED system to upgrade the headlight on Melody last November; you could say the crash I suffered less than a month later sort of "resolved" the matter.

The "shadows" are somewhat darker, but on the other hand, since the light-spread is fairly wide, and I'm actively moving, I can see quite a bit better than with the halogen system I had on Melody, which is to say I don't find the new setup lacking.

I feel the same way about the Vespa LED headlight. No issues whatsoever.

Can you guys post some pictures like I did to see how they compare? Pitch dark flat road is where I took my pics. Been thinking of messing with the beam height adjustment but don't want to just cause I don't like it if it's normal.

The Vespa and me are separated at the moment, but yes, the next time I'll ride at night.
