    Nothing on a GS looks better than its original round light..Originality has something to it that nothing can replace.

    I disagree.Round headlight is old fashion.I am not having original headlight of GS-500E.A brand new one is available for 4000.But i think it's not worth it.

    Who said that the round headlights were old fashioned? Even the latest bikes today come with round lights, for example consider this 2012 V-Rod:
    Changed headlight of my GS500E -1083086

    And if these round lights were old fashioned then renowned bike modifiers around the world would not put a round light on the customized choppers..

    mostly what i notice is latest cruiser have round light....

    and street bikes have lights like the one bikerboy put on now on his GS-500e

    and heavy/sport bikes are mostly trendy in cat/ dual lights..

    so every design has its grace.....

    my 2cents

    This is a cruising bike.Not a street bike.And it's not having a round headlight.It's oval in shape.A modern touch.

    The round headlight gives the GS the macho look that is specifically built for..But modern naked bikes incorporate the designs of your newly replaced headlamp like Ducati streefighter S and especially yours is some what a clone of MV Agusta Brutale RR 1090..SO that one will do

    I just want to say ... that this bike is Exactly how i want a bike to be.

    Simple, yet Elegant and Badass.

    I just dont get the idea of adding "More Plastic" just to increase its looks. Seriously ...

    P.S. People modifying the Piaggios these days with Handle Bars and rear mud guard removed, may have a different perception of "Better Looks". Because to me, that RUINS the bike's looks even more.

    actually man every body has his own taste of what he want his to look like..... Like I always stay inclined to cruiser, choppers, and laid back bikes,

    Some people are more inclined to 'more plastic' modified bikes as I recently saw CG Deluxe Highly, I mean 'seriously' modified more then Paiggos in saome pakwheel thread.. ... so why people do that ? becuase that they way they like it ...

    its because that how they like it to be you know.. and I always always really admire there creativity and enjoy the variance of interest in different youngster and give them more encouragement ...


    just a couple of days back I stopped on signal and another black paiggo came by my side which was heavyly modified and was almost looking like a Dad of my paiggo with Fat tyre Raised tail, low profile front tyre with lower front and ClipOns, exrtra Big final Drive main sprocket for Craziest Accelration possible.. and it just kept all my attention for whole time on the signal ... So it was very very admiring..

    I was so impressed that i also started to think atleast wash my bike some time .... ha ah ha ha h ha ha hha h hha ha hahha
