During 2015 we started with development of our motorcycle lights. We approached two manufactures with concepts and developed two different products. We looked at what was on offer from top international brands and set out to design a product that would not just match them but beat them in every way. We ended with two models which we then evaluated. They sent us final production models and pricing for mass production. We got a little carried away with the ALFA Prototype because the manufacture has a long history of producing military standard lights with life time warranties. The end result was spectacular but sadly it came with a price tag that we later realized will not have a good uptake in the South African market. End 2015 it would have to retail for over R15,000 a set. We are glad we made that call because with the rand plummeting it shot up to well over R20,000 a set. At the end the HI3 won because its performance was very good in comparison and at a much more affordable price point.

Both the HI3 and the ALFA Prototype has 3 modes which can be configured when installing. It can just be high mode or it can follow the high low beams. It also has a flash mode which can be enabled by using a dual switch. The ALFA Prototype set( this is a pair) is not being used and you can stand a chance to be the only person in the world to own a set. All of these manufacture products usually comes with a life time warranty so quality is not a concern. If you are interested go to BIDORBUY and place your bid. The pair comes in an aluminium box with male and female plugs.
