Still a great product and thanks for the quick response. The black is a great look.
One more dumb question, do you have any round lights that would be plug and play for the TW200? Cheers

No one has actually answered my question so I looked it up on the google. Is this what is referred to as the black headlight here on the forum?
Black vs. Chrome vs. Smoke Lamps
When you're shopping around and comparing headlights, you may run across terms such as "black", "chrome", or "smoke" in the Product Options fields. Depending on what's available for each design, our website may ask you to select a color from among those choices. A "black" headlight is one that has a black background (bezel piece) visible through a lens cover that's clear - not tinted. The size and quantity of lighting elements within the assembly determines how much "black" shows. Similarly, a "chrome" headlight is one with a chrome background bezel piece. more details on - https://www.carid.com/articles/how-t...-your-car.html
Hidden Content A ride in the woods helps me relax and release tension. The fact I'm dragging a body should be entirely irrelevant?
Yes, the background is black. The optics are clear. Same light output and pattern as the chrome version.
This is the photo the manufacturer sent me. Black on the left, chrome on the right.
Would you happen to have a pic of the mounting bracket/hardware?
Just placed my order.
Would prefer black if it's available.
Willing to wait an extra week or two if necessary.
And... DAMN, now it looks like I'm gonna have to convert the other TW lights to LED.

One of the beauties of enhanced lighting is it makes one want to go out and enjoy it. Why not extend the riding day to watch the moon rise then meander home chasing that nifty new beam pattern? Night trail riding on a hot summer's eve can be a wonderful experience. The more light the better although the dim stock light can be an adventure in it's own right.
This time of year with the days so short having additional lighting makes a late day ride more attractive if one can just bundle up for the cold.
Nice new headlight option, hope someone can post a photo of the beam pattern next to stock, or a video of bike underway showing illumination.

I had a few crashes this summer and broke off some bits. Cobbled together an oak cowling and mounted a 7" LED headlight and the stock turn signals on in. Crude but strong and seems to be effective. Used rubber grommets for the headlight mounts. Remains to be seen how it holds up.
I like it, looks fine to me!
