Oxford Heaterz Sports Heated Grips
Oxford Heated Grips are Mandatory
This is the second pair of Oxford heated grips I have installed on my motorcycles. I installed a pair earlier this year on my 2012 Kawasaki KLR650. They went on easily and straight forward and work very well. So they were the obvious choice for me to put on my recently acquired 2006 Suzuki DL1000 V-Strom. I commute to work in the early morning and the heated grips are turned on then. I typically use the lowest setting of the four settings. They keep my hands from getting cold and losing dexterity. The texture of grip provides a good grip. They are functional and look good.

Amazing product for the price
If there's one gripe about these grips, it would have to be that the included wiring/harness provides just a bit too much wire for my particular application. Since I installed on an ST1300 with a quartet harness in the front left hand fairing side, I didn't have to go all the way back to the battery directly. That left me with a lot of wire that I had to hide/zip tie and otherwise take care of. Better too much than not enough for sure.
The grips heat up nicely, the control box is easy to use and mount, and they're plenty comfortable. Considering the stock Honda grips (now unavailable mind you) are over $300, these grips are an absolute steal.

One of the best bangs for the buck(s)
I have had these on two other bikes with the only issue being the grip pads wear out. But Oxford has replacement pads now. My current bike, a 2008 Suzuki Burgman 650 had another brand that works but I need to replace them. I will put a set of Oxfords on. I run them thru a relay that is wired to the headlights, so when the bike is shut off so are the grips. Easy to do. The wiring instructions that came with my older Oxfords was easy to understand. Just make sure there are no pinch points during full lock steering and up and down bumps. DaveJ

A little bit of luxury
I've always used the under grip warmers before because I didn't want to be stuck with the uncomfortable grips that I associated with heated grips. Trouble is they offered a limited heat range with their 2 position toggle switch, were slow to warm up, had a resistor to hide somewhere, the wires coming out from under the grip seemed inevitably prone to failure, and the final installation never looked very neat. The Oxford Heaterz Sports Heated Grips resolve all these problems. They warm up quickly, are as comfortable and grippy as the stock grips (TU250X), and provide a wide heat range. Installation takes a little time so it looks neat, but it is nothing difficult. Since most of my riding starts early in the day, I use the heated grips (usually on the lowest setting) almost every time I ride. These grips are well worth the price.

lots of heat, close to oem
I installed these on an 01 bmw f650gs.
They work great, very warm. Solid, good quality construction.
My only complaint is they are made from a hard rubbery plastic, so not very comfortable.
As far as the install, because of the plastic construction, they might crack if you force them onto the handlebars (my right one did), so make sure you plug them in (connect them to the battery) and let them fully warm up BEFORE pushing them onto the bars. Also, I would advise against using the provided superglue, it is definetelly not needed.
Overall, a good product, I'm happy with the purchase.

Oxford Heaterz Sports Heated Grips
The only problems I can find with them is that they are a little shorter than the stock grips of my 83 Honda Nighthawk 650 and that most of the Oxford grips are open ended. Shopping for handlebar endcaps/weights now.

Nice looking, fast heating...
Put these on a NC700x, Hardest part was smoothing the ridges on the throttle side so the grip would slide on....
Other than that easy peasy install...............
