I think I can probably live without the icon on the screen in return for the cost saving by getting Oxfords plus, you know, the fact that they get hot

Holy sh*t !! So it took me 450 km to learn all teh features of the display.... And besides, in the highest position the heated grips are OK for me... :-D

I've ordered the heated grips, I've never had a problem before with Honda grips not being warm enough,
My dealer did say the glue to fit them has to be left a week to set , can't see that happening somehow

Other than being a bit of a rip-off the heated grips seemed to work fine when I test rode the bike. That was on the highest setting - but when I turned them down they hardly felt on.

Has anybody out there had any experience with Koso heated grips?

Things will always turn out good in the end. If things are not good, then it is not yet the end.

It would be great to hear how you get on Diamondgeezer. I've ordered them even tho. the ones on the demo I tried were a bit feeble. Thought they were maybe a duff set but hearing this I'm thinking they might just not be very good...

Same here. Heated grips on both demo bikes I tried were Luke warm on the highest setting. Similar to the halfway setting on my triumph

I might flag this up with the dealer before he fits them. Seems pointless paying top dollar for something that doesn't work. The aftermarket ones I've had have been great.
It does look like its a common complaint, maybe Honda will sort it out after enough complaints....

I found out the grips are very poor in comparison to my other Hondas only just warm on 5

Honda are doing what triumph did when they launched the brilliant tiger they charge a fortune for extras and ended up with a warehouse full of un purchased extras , people purchased better value aftermarket extras ! they then and now charge a little more for the bike but include all extras.

I tried both models and have ordered a non auto white one with the adventure kit as it is discounted as a kit

no Honda panniers though ?? as they only look good enough for cooking food in your microwave

But what a fantastic bike very impressive

a brilliant bike

I just hope its a faultless as my crosstourer has been
