It looks like a photoshop job ... If you did it just to see how it would look, I dont think it will sit as flush to the forks as it shows. If you take off the factory gauges and the front turn signals you might get it close.

Yeah, it's just to see how it would look. What do you think?

I happen to agree. The 919 is a classy bike. You can't chop the head off a transformer and put it on your bike.

I think it fits nicely with the lines of the bike... Do it :P

I like the Hesa Fire headlight...I wonder if it fit in the stock brackets.

And I thought the B-King looked like a transformer! It is indeed different, but not my style. Is that even a real kind of headlight?

Knees in the breeze!

Yeah, that's where I found it. If I do this, it would require a complete transformation of the rest of my bike, if I'm gonna make it work. It would not work at all with the current direction my bike is going. Which means alot more $$$$ out of my pocket.

I want one. But the shoyo is one of the few "face" headlights I do dig. I think your right though. Seems like a bike needs to be pointier or something for it to look at home.

I do actually like it too. It works extremely well with the sample bike they have pictured. Like I said, it would require a complete transformation of my 919 for it to work, but I'm positive with creative ingenuity, it can come out looking awesome!! I just don't know if I wanna spend the time or money taking that risk!!

An occasional interesting piece, and lots of gawdawful stuff. Sort of proof of the saying "Nobody ever went broke underestimating the taste of the American public."

If it has already been done, it is safe to assume it is possible to do it.
On the other hand, if it has not been done never assume it is impossible to do it.

Found these pics while searching for people with Hesa Fire headlights. These are the only pics I've found and the guy is an ex-919 owner. Go figure.




It looks a bit goofy.
