When bright is not bright enough, grab a set of Denali D2 LED Lights from Twisted Throttle. Small and BRIGHT, with an effective beam distance of 423ft and still an incredibly small power draw!
Denali D2 Lights
The unique optic in the D2 light was designed to create a massive beam of light that is the perfect balance between distance and width. You won’t believe how much light is thrown out in front of you, and off to the sides. Consuming only 10 watts of power per lamp, the Denali D2 lights throw a blazing beam of light 423 feet down the road in front of you. That’s 3 times further than your typical motorcycle high beam.
Pod Size: 2” round x 2.4” long
LED: (1x) 10 Watt CREE XM-L2
Beam Distance: 423’
Input Voltage: 12v DC
Power Draw: 1.5 amps per pair
Beam Angle: 10° or 40°
Waterproof: IP-68 (full immersion at 6.6ft for 60 minutes)
Mount: Universal M8
Dual Intensity Technology
The Denali D2 lights are equipped with a dual intensity LED and harness to create the ideal lighting solution for on and off road riders who want an uncompromised beam of light illuminating the road in front of them. These lights are so bright, we developed dual intensity technology so you can use your existing hi/low beam switch to select half intensity brightness when passing oncoming. The lights can also be wired independent of your high/low beam switch to run at full intensity all the time. It’s up to you!
All Denali LED lights are housed in a rugged waterproof aluminum housing (submersible up to 3 meters underwater). Our LED’s boasts an average life span of 50,000 hours; that’s 6 years without ever being shut off. Yes, we went overboard. It’s what we do.
Making our light kits easy to mount and install to your motorcycle is a top priority for us. Every light kit includes a universal M8 mounting bracket and detailed wiring diagrams that are simple and easy to understand. Bike specific light mounts are also available for many popular bike models. An included waterproof switch allows the lights to be shut off at any time. Please visit TwistedThrottle.com for more information on mounting options for your motorcycle.

2 x Denali D2 LED light pods
Wiring Harness with Dimmer Module, Relay and Lighted Switch
2 x M8 (8mm) mounting brackets
2 x spot driving beam lenses (10 degree beam pattern)
2 x flood beam lenses (40 degree beam pattern)

Denali Auxiliary Light Mount Application Chart If your bike is not listed, please Contact Us for advice on an appropriate fitting solution.
For motorcycles with CAN-Bus electrical systems, such as later model BMWs, the CAN-Bus Adapter is recommended in order to avoid disrupting the CAN-Bus system..
We have noticed that the interlink and associated channel on the LED pod have very tight tolerances. It may be that you find that the interlink does not want to seat. In this case apply a light tap to the interlink to slide it in far enough to allow the M3 bolt to gain purchase.
Motorcycles with a low beam that does not remain powered while the high beam is active require connecting the WHITE 12 volt power wire to a switched 12 volt power source other that the low beam headlight circuit.
Be certain to plug the light switch into the proper port and the light pods as well. Premature failure can result if done improperly.
For installations on motorcycles that have LED headlights or headlight circuits that do not provide 12 volts, such as the BMW R1200GS LC ’13-’14, it is recommended that the WHITE 12 volt power wire be connected to the positive circuit of the motorcycle’s Auxiliary Power Supply socket or accessory. The CAN-Bus Adapter is not required for this installation
For dual intensity installations on motorcycles that have LED high beams or high beam circuits that do not provide 12 volts, such as the BMW R1200GS LC ’13-’14, it is recommended that a second switch (not included) be installed to provide the correct voltage to the high beam trigger wire. This switch should be installed between the BLUE high beam trigger wire and the WHITE 12 volt power wire circuit. The SW-MOTECH Weatherproof Accessory Switch is recommended for this application.
Like the lights. Only complaint is that the hookup wiring is not strait forward and requires some willingness and ability to DIY. (Posted on 12/31/14)
Review by KrisOG
The Triumph Tiger 1050 is notorious for having terrible lights. This kit improved the low beam visibility and seriously increased visibilty on the high beam setting. It would probably be better if I use the narrow beam filter instead of the wide beam, but most of my riding is on two-lane country roads so I need to see to the sides. Installation was a bit difficult despite being 90% plug and play, but I think that has to do with the Tiger's sealed headlight and lack of secure places for the ballast. I also noticed some sporadic flickering, so I'm not sure what that is all about. (Posted on 12/24/14)

While riding in the UP of Michigan, I was pulled over by one of Michigan's finest. As I watched him in my rearview mirror walk up to me, he looked pretty intimidating. The first thing out of his mouth was, "What kind of lights are those?" I told him about my Denali 2's and said "You could see me coming, couldn't you?" Turns out he was a rider also, and we talked about bikes for awhile, exchanged cards and he let me off with a warning. I think the lights paid for themselves that day! (Posted on 11/15/14)

Much better than some other popular brands and way cheaper. The D2 is perfect for my BMW K1600GT. I used these in place of the poor factory aux lights. Ive had them for over two years and they still Impress. I can see off to the sides and down the road. For the great price and quality, what's not to like? I was also able to use the factory switch for a super clean install. (Posted on 10/22/14)

I installed my D2s a few weeks ago and absolutely love them (Posted on 10/1/14)
Review by Msquared
Install is relatively simple. I did not remove the gas tank but 'fished' the lines behind the tank panels and behind and underneath the tank itself. Wiring diagram is easy to understand and the photos on the website under tutorials were very helpful in seeing how Twisted Throttle crews installed the D2's on their own company bike. I used the Best Rest light bar which is a solid, simple install and keeps the D2's tight to the frame so that if you are riding off-road and dump your bike, there will be very little probability of damaging the lights or light bar.

I have equipped 3 bikes with these lights, two BMWs and a Honda. They add to my visibility, both day and night, and the installation is straight forward and foolproof.
The compact size gives more mounting options than a bigger light. (Posted on 9/1/14)
Review by Dfreeair
Bought a set of D2's for my 2012 vstrom 650. Worked as advertised. Wired them to the high/low headlight switch. On low they make for extra visibility during daytime running and at night on high beam unbelievable how they light up the sides of the road as well as how far down the road they illuminate. Easy to install, good instructions. Definitely buy the Denali Power Hub 2. Cleans up everything nice. Also if you have a new vstrom 650 I would buy the SW-Mototech brackets. High quality, fit perfect, and march the lines on the bike. (Posted on 8/1/14)

They work as they are supposed to work and look great. Unscientific, but it seems cars pull out much less often with these lights on. And only on low beam. (Posted on 7/31/14)
Review by Guest
I shop with you guys because you have some of the best products around. This is the second set of D2's that I purchased. I bought the second set for my wife after having my set for over a year. I have them on my Sportster with an after market LED Harley headlight. The headlight is good, in that it throws a well defined box of light way down the road, but it leaves a gap lower and to the sides of the beam. I set the Denalis top edge of the beam parallel to the ground and the inner edge straight ahead. On my trip down Rt 66 last year I did some back road riding at night. With the high beams it was like daylight and the colors of things were not orange like you get with stock headlights. I could see the critters on the side of the road, long before I got there.
I was turning on to our street yesterday and noticed a motorcycle coming at me about a half a mile away. It was bright! It wasn't obnoxious, but you couldn't miss it. I thought, "man those are the lights that I should have bought; I wonder what type they are." As we got closer I recognized that it was my wife and those were the Denalis. I am glad that I bought them and I am really glad that you guys continue to bring products like them to the market.

Note that this LED light set shows a 20 Amp fuse in the instructions as supplied with the kit. This is an old illustration and these lights do not draw this much current. These lights come with a 5 Amp fuse which is plenty for these 10 Watt lamps. High beam only draws 1.52 amps and low beam draws only .25 amps. (Posted on 1/8/14)
Review by Kenneth H
Boy William must be doing something wrong. I have the Denali D2 Single Intensity (now discont'd. I understand) installed on my R1200RT and WHOA! it's daylight! I can't imagine needing dual intensity D2's. I'm a very picky person when it comes to my toys, and I didn't find the installation difficult at all, and only another $70 or so for the BMW RT mount kit and CAN-BUS adapter. Thanks, Twisted Throttle for great products and service. (Posted on 8/21/13)

I plan on riding early mornings before the sun is up. So I wanted a aftermarket LED light that would meet my needs. I selected the Denali D2 with dual intensity.
Why I like this light is because its compact, Has a wiring harness premade (so I don't have to make one), comes with a switch, and low amperage draw.
Installation is a BREEZE. I have a HONDA NC700x w/DCT and I have the optional subharness on the bike. I was able to tap into the subharness for the wiring to trigger the high beam circuit and also a 12 volt switch circuit. I used a sumitomo connector so I didn't have to HARD vampire tap it. Ran the wires and it was all done. I can say it was HARDER to remove the skin (plastic) from the bike than installing the Denali's. If you have any kind of electronics, automotive, computer hardware background then it would be easy for you to install. Works great !!! (Posted on 8/4/13)
Review by William
These lights are super bright and perfect for daytime safety or extra night time visibility. However, they are not so easy to install. So, unless you are great at electronics installation yourself, count on another 150 to 200 bucks to get these things on your bike. Still worth the 500 bucks plus? Yep. (Posted on 5/30/13)
Review by James
Just got my Denali D2D's installed on my 2002 BMW R1150 GSA......... Outstanding!!!!!!!!! Had them installed while I waiting at the Daytona Speedway. The ride home was unbelievable, these little but powerful lights throw it down the highway. The tech adjusted them perfect so even when I've got them on high beam, I'm not blinding oncoming traffic. Thank you Twisted Throttle............ (Posted on 3/18/13)
