The official Honda Access site has lists of accessories for all current bikes, as well as a little information on previous versions of the bike.

The site can be found here.

CB1000R specific here.

Doble tell me that there are three types of heated grips for Honda that are standard over all ranges. One for small engined bikes, one for medium and one for large, so they shouldn't be a problem. All dealers can get a full accessory pack for the test bike, so I don't see any reason why they won't be available from launch. Certainly the grips should be, and the rest of what I've asked for can be fitted easily enough (rear seat cowl and rear hugger) so I don't mind if I have to wait a short while. If there's a big delay on the rear shock I might get a shock-sock instead though

dealers now says the heated grips are one button with five led,s lights, sounds to me like Honda are pushing their old stock, and as for rear hugger only carbon fiber available sick of the bull shit told him where to stick his hugger. :bs :bs :bs :bs :angry :angry :angry :angry

Again, exactly as expected Alan. The heated grips are a single button, as they are on my Hornet ATM (though they have three LEDs which have 5 different combinations to indicate the setting). They work fine and I've no complaints. I use them every day in the winter and a lot during the rest of the year if it's either cold or raining, as they dry your hands as they get wet. I have no complaints. As I said, they're a standard part, rather than something that is designed specifically for the CB1000R. They won't custom design one for a bike like this as most people won't want them on it.

The hugger, as you can see from the official Honda images, is VERY small, and I was quoted £175 for it. The one that Rosso Cromo showed on the XESS bike looks much better, but I doubt it's any cheaper. a) Honda parts are never cheap and b) neither are quality carbon fibre parts.

No doubt Ermax etc will have plastic/fibre versions available soon enough which will be much cheaper

Excellent, they are good :thumbup

Dan; I know loads of people who had Oxford ones and they broke. Seems that they're OK as long as you don't want to turn them on :banghead

Just got the accessories brochure through for the CB and it lists the heated grips at £150 plus fitting. seems a lot to me compared to after market makes like Daytona (about £50). Are the Honda ones worth the difference?

I'll be getting the seat cowl even though it is £125. The black and grey alacantra seat looks good too but don't they soak up water?

The hugger looks useless to me and is £175 so I'll be waiting for aftermarket

Never had a problem with mine (mine had the variable temperature dial)..... they helped take the bite out of the winter air.... but a little hotter would have been nice.

Unless you do alot of winter riding I wouldn't bother with heated grips... the extra wires from the grips look ugly to me.

They're actually quite neat on my Hornet, and they are warm. They're variable temp too by pressing the button more until it goes off again. Pretty neat. I ride all year and value them very highly

I fit the "wrap around" type with velcro, used em 4 for two years with no probs, plus they take 30 secs to unplug and remove for the summer so I dont have to look at any ugly switches etc. :thumbup
