I've got a set of those Oxford grips I'm about to put on my '16.
I have Apollo heated grips on F and they are way better than Oxfords. I had the oxfords on a Dr650 and they were ok but I didn’t like the extra control panel. The Apollo grips have an integrated switch and 5 settings. They are more money but are totally worth it. I ride all year here in British Columbia so I know what works.Heated grips are an optional extra in the UK they are £396 + fitting.
However they are nowhere near as good as the Oxford's as I have found out.
The operation is fiddly and they do not produce the same heat.
I had heard things in the past about them not heating the entire grip just a part of the circumference but the dealer assured me they now covered the whole grip, so I gave them a try.
A feature is that they reduce heating if they think the generator output is low, like when riding at low speed or stationary.?.
They will be OK for chilly conditions but can't see them coping with frost and cold. I found even the Oxfords couldn't cope with that.
The real answer of course is heated gloves.
Anyway I don't ride when its that cold so they will do for me. To end on a positive the wiring is less bulky than the Oxfords and there is no huge control panel sticking up.
