CBR250R Headlight from newer model

The CBR250R 2011 has a very modern look especially with some classic colors like black or red. However the only big downside in the look department is the front headlight which is yellow and retro looking. It does not fit the bike at all.

I can source a 2011 bike but I want to have a decent look to ot.

As I can see the only choices are:
fitting a T10 philips led 4000k parklights, and 4300k HID main beam.
Or fitting the new LED headlight from the newer model bike.

The second option is a lot more preferable even tho I think it will be extremely expensive, however I want to know if it will fit and connect easily?

I cannot find a topic that discusses this which is weird, because it should be the only thing that needs adressing aestetically on this bike.

Do you mean you don't like the color temperature of the bulb?

I fitted an aftermarket H4 LED bulb to my cycle a few years ago (not a CBR), and there should be LED kits for around $50 or so for the CBR.

That is one of the options that I mentioned.

But the new headlight makes the bike look like a 1.000.000 bucks. Modern and sleek.

That is why I am asking if a retrofit is possible.

Here is somethink similar:

I think this is what you are looking for -

The CBR takes a standard H4 headlight bulb, so there are many options for a LED replacement.

My LED H4 has a built-in fan, but many have a heat-sink strap. I prefer the fan. There are many different types with differing outputs and types of cooling.
