Motorcycle LED Headlight from Aliexpress for bicycle night rides

Hi, 
I want to build a mountain bikes light for a friend.
I come across this light on Aliexpress and it seems nice.
Unfortunately not a lot of information is provided.
Did anyone had a chance to play with this light? Any review is welcome



TIA

My cousin uses similar ones, but they look a little different and come in black

they look awesome IRL and on the street.

Apparently there are many similar light types

Thanks, these lights are wide beam, the one i was asking about is a thrower.
The main reason I was interested with that model is the huge heat sink winch, I hope,  allow constant turbo mode.
It also claimed to have a XHP 70 emitter...

Never seen those, I’m running these on my 09 vstrom 650, wide beam with a 3m yellow self stick film to make them yellow. $20 / pair on amazon, cheap, probably 6500K tint, be careful because these can leak, some well placed silicone will fix

Thanks, Does it have any smart features such as thermal protection/ low battery protection etc.?

Back in time I bought 5pcs (their last stock) for <$9/piece from a local online seller in my country, 4 of them was sold with some modifications.

Now I just have one on my bike, it has a good heatsink, but it cames with cheapy Eti7070 with blue-ish tint (I belive more than 7000K) and thin aluminum pcb for the led & driver.

I mod them with dedomed 6500K 12v Xhp70.2 20mm copper mcpcb (thermal glued) and 12v 2.4A driver.

Be careful when you try to open the bezel, the thread was glued. I broke the first light’s bezel and need to make the new one.
For the other lights, I used the heat technique for opening the bezels. Also, you need to seal the the glass and the cables output. It’s not rainproof at all.

Thanks, that is some useful info.
I will try order this version since it claimed to have XHP 70 from factory. worse case, I will mod it myself....

So I got the light, connected it to a 1P4S 21700 battery holder with a protection board and a simple on/off switch. I also sew a PVC case to protect the batteries.
Seems like a nice solution for night rides: constant 1000 lm for 150-200 meters it consume constant 1.5A so high capacity 21700 will last for about 3h and not get hot while riding
