MondoMotos - LED Lighting and lots more
« on: November 29, 2012, 02:54:31 pm »
Greetings all,

A few of you may already know of MondoMotos, but for those that dont:

My name is Brian and along with my wife Kris and our partner Bob we are the entirety MondoMotos.

MondoMotos was started in 2011 selling LED DRL's that Bob and I fabricated one at a time in our shop.

The MM01DRL caught on and became popular as a low power, cost effective and stylish Daytime Running Light.  Production costs caused us to discontinue it in 2012.  Since our inception, we have brought 3 more LED Auxiliary lights to market and continue to offer 2 of those.

The MM12 and our most recent offering the MM10 Bullet.



MM10 Bullet Dimensions


The MM10 Bullet uses the CREE XM-L chip making it our most powerful light. It has proven itself to be a rugged, well made and a good choice for anyone looking for Auxilary lighting.

The XLamp XM-L is the industry’s brightest, highest-performance lighting-class LED. With breakthrough light output and efficacy, XM-L is designed for very high-lumen applications such as roadway lighting.

Each 2.5" heavy duty, rugged light uses far less electrical power (10 watts) and last up to 50X longer than a comparable (60-70 watt) halogen unit. Perfect for use where available electrical power is at a minimum, or anywhere rugged, powerful auxiliary lighting is required.


Product Details

Utilizes the CREE XM/L LED

Made of strong die cast aluminum with a nearly unbreakable lens.

IP68 (submersible) standard, Marine quality, Weatherproof, Waterproof, Rust proof, and Shock proof.

All the hardware, bolts, nuts and washers are stainless steel.

25 Degree driving beam for optimum visibilty.

Extremely long life- up to 50,000hrs



Its ultra compact size and low “draw” make it perfect for use on most any bike and it has proven to be a popular choice for Connie riders.

By day it makes a great DRL, by night it makes a great auxiliary light.

Kits are priced @ $149 and include:

2 - MM10 Bullet LED lights w/Stainless Steel Hardware (Plug-n-Play)
1 - Wiring Harness w/Relay and Lighted switch (Plug-n-Play)
as well as instructions


Truth be told, none of us currently own a Concours (however my brother is the proud owner of a 2005 C10 that has been his main love since it was new).

So why are we here?

First to thank you to those of you who picked up on the MM10 early on and posted up your reviews and thoughts here (and elsewhere).

Secondly to extend a discount to members of the forum interested in purchasing a set of the MM10 Bullet LED's (lights or kit).

By using the Discount Code - COG5 you will get 5% off the price.

Lastly, in mid 2012 we also began offering other products as well. Our website lists a few of these, but by no means does it end there.

If there is something in particular you are looking for, please let us know (email, pm, phone). If we dont have the best price, we will let you know who does.

You can find us @ www.MondoMotos.com



Thanks,
-Brian

Brian,
These look good! Wish I had known about them before I bought another brand to replace some LEDs that died.  >:(
C'est la vie! I hope these do well.

Have you any photographs of your kit installed on a C14?
I'm all for more lighting and being more conspicuous - but want to see the finished product prior to purchasing.

Hi guys,
These are nice looking lights, and I'm wondering how they are built internally to resist vibrations. I have installed lights on the tip-over bars of our C10, and cannot keep bulbs in them. I've gone through several sets of H3 bulbs, each one ends up with the filament broken (in a couple of months). My lights are mounted very rigidly (see photo). I am concerned that the leads and wiring inside the lamps would end up breaking from fatigue. Can you describe how they are wired internally?
Thank you,
Jorge

Jorge,

the lights are wired direct to the LED element (soldered). I have used these (and similar style) lights off-road where they get plenty beat up. No issues with vibration.

Thanks for the question,

Hello, I have had the older style on my C-10 bike for well over 20,000 miles with no issues. I've dealt with Brain for some time and his lights and integrity are of a very high standard.  I'll be ordering these for my C-14.

I installed a set of the bullet lights about a month ago, just when it started to rain, so I have not yet put them to use. I did have a problem with one of the mounts on the light, but was sent a replacement right away. Could not ask for better customer service than that.

This is my bike below.  These are great lights to enhance oncoming visibility.  The electrical connections are much improved since these lights were introduced.

Hi all,

On Jan 2nd we will be launching a new website, with some enhanced features (account creation, product reviews, etc). Our website address will remain the same.

But more importantly, we have been able to renegotiate with a couple suppliers this past month which makes it possible to do price restructuring on a few items.

Meaning: lower prices on our LED lights and light kits.

Effective Jan 2:

MM10 Bullet Light Kits - $136 - with 5% discount = $129.20

MM10 Bullet Lights (pair) - $96 - with 5% discount = $93.10


Will will also be introducing a few new products in the coming months and will continue to do all we can to provide the best products at the best prices.

May 2013 bring MANY, MANY two-wheeled adventures your way  :beerchug:

Here are a few pics of mine mounted on the fender screw.  Used a couple of washers, spacers, and longer screws. Also running the MM10's with the Skeene dimmer.

We have had to make a slight price adjustment to our MM10 Bullet light kits



MM10 Bullet Light Kit


New price - $146 - With the COG5 Discount the final price = $138.70

We will no longer offer the "lights only" option.

To apply the 5% discount be sure to enter the COG5 coupon code once you have added the light kit to you cart.

Its been a busy last few weeks as riders are bringing there bikes out of storage and getting ready for riding season here in the midwest. Looking forward to a great riding season.

Would still like to know.

I'd wish that you'd reconsitter this as I and others that don't need (or want) the switch may not want to give you the extra $$$ for something that we'd never use. The way I see it is that a lot of your potential customers that are trying to figure out where to spent what little extra $$$ they have, don't want to be wasting it on some additional part(s) that have been grouped together into a kit. Those customers will just go elsewhere (which is what I will do if you decide to keep these as a kit only).

IMHO vendors should be giving potential customers more choices. Allowing us to pick and pay for only the parts that we want. In short, how hard is it on you or your staff to include or to not include the switch on an order by order base? Is it so difficult that you don't care if you loose some potential customers and their $$$?

Well, given the CREE XM/L LED lamp, the CREE website says 1000 lm.
