PIAA Announces Innovative New Family of Powersports Driving and Fog Lamps

vendor.2011.logo_.piaa_.jpgPortland, OR, November 28, 2011 – PIAA Corporation has introduced its line of LED fog and driving lights, called the LP530LED, for the powersports industry using innovative new reflector facing LED technology. PIAA (pronounced pe’-uh) has introduced new technology that incorporates an ingenious LED compatible reflector and reflector facing LEDs that provide greatly improved lighting and beam control over other LED and even conventional halogen lights.

Central to the performance of these new lamps is PIAA’s exclusive computer-designed multi-surface reflector which concentrates and focuses the beam pattern more precisely than forward-facing LED lamps. The result is fog and driving lamps that offer the beam control of a halogen lamp, but with much lower power consumption, more compact size, and greater durability.

PIAA’s new 530 series lamps are designed for use on motorcycles, ATVs/UTVs, snowmobiles, and for other powersports vehicles. PIAA offers application-specific brackets for several BMW motorcycles, Honda Gold Wing, Triumph Tiger, and the Suzuki V-Strom. Additional brackets for Honda Gold Wing and the Yamaha Super Tenere are in the prototype stage and will be released soon as well.

Gordon Robertson, Vice President of Sales for PIAA Powersports, explains the benefits of this new family of lamps for the powersports market. “We have nearly fifty years of creating innovative new lamps and bulbs for on- and off-road vehicles. We know that the powersports industry in particular is always looking for powerful and durable yet affordable illumination options which is why we are so proud of our new 530LED.”

Continues Robertson, “PIAA’s advanced LED technology aims high output LEDs at a geometrically perfect multi-surfaced computer designed reflector resulting in the precise beam pattern of a halogen, the color temperature of H.I.D. and the low power requirements of an LED. Our new 530 family of fog and driving lamps will enhance visibility and safety for motorcyclists as well as operators of ATVs and UTVs, while providing a rugged design that will hold up to severe use on or off the road.”

Robertson adds, “Very soon we will be introducing a kit for installing our 530 lamp into the stock fog light position of Honda Gold Wing bikes. This kit will complement other application-specific as well as universal mounting brackets PIAA currently offers. These kits will allow for sturdy and rattle-free installation on all types of motorcycle and powersports vehicles.”
