Which Oxford heated grips

I fitted the Premium Touring ones , with 5 heat settings although you can get the more
modern ones with 9 settings and a memory that goes back to the last setting when switched on
again and a longer guarantee I think .
The 5 heat ones are a bit cheaper but work ok for me so its just a matter of choice .
They both fit the SX and there are loads of threads on fitting them .

I have the sports grip (lots of tiny little dimples) 9 settings version, I'm happy with the heat they produce and the controller  but the sports grip has worn away very quickly (less than 8k miles) if I had to buy again I'd go for the tour grip pattern. To be honest I may just be swapping the grips out to the tour grips. Looking and feeling both grips it seems to me the offer the same level of grip but the tour pattern looks like it will last longer.

On my third set now...2 sets of the sport 5 heat level version, but they included 3 left hand grips, as that hand wore through MUCH quicker!?!  :187:
Now use the latest touring version with 9 heat levels and wouldn't bother with the Sport version again!  :028:

Great info guys. Are they for 22mm bars? You have part numbers? There are so many different ones

They both fit the 2017 so should fit your 2019 as it's the same bike other than fairing colour and re reversed dash colour

Under £50 (bargain) but only the premium 5 settings version

(£80 but advanced 9 settings version) there are other grip designs such as retro and adventure to choose from but I've no experience with these grip designs

the best heated grips are the R&G ones, they are longer than Oxford and the cable is not as obtrusive - much cheaper too
