Default led headlight question

Hi everyone, I am a new owner of a Victory Cross Country bike. It's 2010, and I bought it with a crack in a headlight lens. Now, I think of installing a new light, and while a new/used OE headlight is still an option for me, I think of a sealed headlight with a LED projector. I understand, that tastes differ, and not everyone understands this kind of upgrade on a touring bike, yet I'd like to try it out.
Now, I know, that not all vehicles tolerate aftermarket LED units, that's pretty much the reason why I decided to post here and ask your folks experience about LEDs on the Victory bikes. Can someone comment on the LEDs that work fine without shaking, hyperflashing, errors?
I will show you folks the LED lights I think are fine:


Oracle headlight, $195, from Motorcycle id
Now, I know that Oracle makes a lot of custom lights for both motorcycles and cars, but I've never heared of SKTyants (but I like the price). I know, that good stuff cannot be cheap, but does such a price difference mean that Oracle quality is better? Or that's the case when you pay for the brand?
Thanks,
Tony.

I bought the complete OEM LED headlight when Polaris had their fire sale and it works fine. There are also aftermarket chinese made LED sealed units on amazon and fleabay all day long. Do a search on here, tons of topics on various LED options.

I bought the junk Chinese LED and then paid more money for the Victory Beacon LED. Use me for an example and don't buy twice, just get the Vic LED.

If you cant find an original Victory one, don't spend that kind of money. I bought the below one and love it, half the cost of what you are looking at.

I know the hot new thing is LED headlights and I'm sure they're great but just so you know you have other options besides a stock bulb; I've been running a low beam HID in my XC for many years.

I'm not sure "he" still owns it. He had it up for sale some time back. He was a good moderator here too.

I appreciate your help, folks! Well, now I will not consider any of those 2 I posted in the very 1st post, and I'll better get in touch with the Victory HID to see, what they offer.
Appreciate your comments on this!
Thanks,
Tony.
