Optional heated grips are now available for every BMW Motorrad model (with the exception of the uncompromising HP2 Enduro). At low temperatures, these not only provide increased comfort but primarily fulfil a key safety function. After all, as every experienced motorcyclist knows, only warm hands can react fast.
BMW Motorrad has further optimised the two-level adjustable heated grips. The new generation is "intelligent" and regulates the heat level automatically. In conjunction with the on-board computer it reacts to the outside temperature due to high-precision sensors, automatically adapting the heat level of the grips to the conditions. In this way, the rider can concentrate fully on the road.
In extreme weather conditions or if the rider wants the grips to heat up faster, he can of course continue to select the second level, and the grips then heat up to maximum level immediately.
