[REVIEW] Heated Grips: Vs Oxford Vs RG

Heated grips are the single best upgrade you can get on a to make it more comfortable, for touring or commuting all year

Even in a warm climate we have in Portugal, heated make it possible to wear (or mid season) gloves all year and make your winter a lot more pleasurable.

The big question is ones to buy. A quick online will find you a few brands and prices. The most being the Oxford Hot Grips (in various iterations) and probably the RG.

The Daytonas are a little less

I’ve fitted Daytona grips to the ZZR a couple of years ago and bought the Oxford Premium Hot Grips for the Super Duke. also tried out the RG on a friend’s and if you’re interested in a user this are my thoughts:

Daytona Grips

I’m picky with the on my bikes, I don’t like or hard rubber grips and I was looking for my first set of heated that was an important factor. The was another so at the time the Oxford Hot (75€-80€) where out of the question.

After some looking online I decided to make use of a on Louis.De and bought a set of Daytonas for 45€ + shipping.

Because it was spring the where at a discount and I ended them cheap and have of time to fit them.

I love the and feel of the grips, they are and rubbery but not too thin or too soft and are a fit for the ZZR. I actually think look and feel better the original ones.

As for the wiring and controller, they are enough to install, although I up going the easy route an them directly to the battery, if I forget them on they drain the battery. (Although in 2 that as never happened)

The comes with a bracket to fit to the but has the ZZR has clip-one I’ve opted to fit it Velcro and when not in use (Summer) it stuck to the inner side of the air duct, and when I need it I change it to a bit of Velcro on the triple

The controller as 3 positions: OFF, and ON, which that is it’s point.

START gives power (48W) and beats the pretty fast, but it’s to be used solely has a start up and the instructions state that it NEVER be used for longer 1min or the whole system fail.

However I’ve the ON setting (15W) to be too weak at and when the weather is really my hands start to get chilly with the heated grips so I ended up ignoring the warnings and use the function whenever I need a bit warmth. It does get a bit too hot after a so I just go back and fourth ON and START to try and keep a comfortable Which is not perfect, but the system as a lot more than 1min in power mode and it has never or even degraded itself, so I the guys at Daytona where a bit


After two years of use and about the grips show some if use but nothing much and still and work great, so the build is very good.
