    If you can buy the genuine brands straight from their website or chinese sellers, then all these are good but quite expensive. Don't even think about buying these from Indian online sellers like Amazon and flipkart, all of those sellers are selling FAKE products under those brand names.

    Cyclops LED
    Night eye LED

    2. How is the performance of Maddog Aux lights. Would like to know the best mounting position based on experience..Is the fork mounting option really good or is it better to mount the aux lights near the headlamp. Also are the Maddog LED Aux lights really capable of withstanding a Ladakh ride without causing catastrophic damage to the bikes wiring etc...

    Looking forward to receiving your valuable feedback...
    We have to install the auxiliary lights well below the headlight as per the law, the maddog aux looks pretty good in the youtube videos and people recommend them as well. Maddog even has wiring kits for the aux lights which you purchase, looks pretty robust and secure and will result in no open end wires, which is the main cause of faults.
    Peace

    Hey, I have recently installed aux fog LED lights on my Dominar's crash guard. I could have easily installed it near the headlight, but I wanted it to be as discreet as possible.

    BTW which "law" are you talking about, care to explain? AFAIK, all after market lights are disallowed by Motor vehicle Act, especially bright headlights. And I couldn't find anything about aux light & its height with respect to the stock headlight.

    Some youtubers (from Delhi) have claimed that we can avoid getting a challan by putting a COVER on aux led lamps.

    @Chakrapani
    Maddog is not an exclusive manufacturer like auxbeam. They are an Indian third party seller, importing from China. They are hugely overpriced, 4 times the price on chinese websites. I would suggest you to wait a couple of months then buy aux led lights straight from Aliexpress. Right now, Indian customs is overloaded due to backlog of imported goods, resulting in huge delays in deliveries to end customer. I myself will start buying from Aliexpress from December.

    Presently, Indian customs have become strict about "gift" items. They straight away slap 40% GST on all imports, no matter the price. On rare occasions, some products escape such duty due to negligence or owning to tiny package size. But you should be prepared to pay 40% duty on top of the price of the item while buying on Aliexpress. BUT it will be still MUCH CHEAPER than the price asked by Maddog for its plain old led aux lights.

    Thanks for your valuable inputs. I always had this doubt about Maddog being a third party reseller for Chinese goods, but could never get a confirmation of the same.

    I shall keep in mind your suggestions. Possibly have someone coming from abroad bring aux lights along. Are there any Indian brands of repute who manufacture aux lights...

    Hi Guys, I've ordered NightEye LED bulb from different sellers on Amazon and have compared them all for physical appearances to spot the fake ones. The light output of the genuine one is just a bit better than the fake but the difference is noticeable.
    I'd like to point out though that even using the genuine product doesn't ensure best light throw. Will post pictures and some ideas to improve the light output from the reflector type setup of your bikes soon. Meanwhile here's a document to help you confirm authenticity of the product received.

    I was searching for the perfect aux spot light for a year. All the current available options have shallow reflector bowls which can never focus the light beyond 50 meters, however powerful the led drivers. I came to that conclusion after carefully studying the led lights, their reflector design and youtube reviewers. In short, they all claim to throw light till 100 kms but in reality act like a FLOOD light only.

    I finally bought this one and am more than satisfied:

    I liked the zoom in/out feature the most. If I want a wider pattern, I can easily adjust the zoom level, else keep it fully zoomed in to get an intense narrow beam which illuminates 300 meters easily! Search "kz30" on youtube for reviews and related videos. Please note, I am not advertising, just sharing my personal experience. Also, I couldn't find these "kz30" aux lights anywhere else for cheaper than that, if you do then tell me too, planning to buy it again for my Unicorn 160.
