Triumph grips don't seem as hot as the Oxford ones I had on my Thundercat but they are sufficient. I made a set of overmits from some cordura fabric as a wind block and these help in a big way, along side the grips. No matter how hot your grips the back of your hands still get cold with the wind chill.  Heated seat is excellent. Only downside I find is that if its raining you sometimes get the sensation that you've peed yourself.  :492:

Well at least if you're riding in the rain, you don't need to worry about pee stops  :001:
Give a man a fish and he'll demand chips, a six pack of stella, 20 fags and a scratch card to go with it. Make him do some work for his fish. He'll aporeciate it more.

I've got OEM Triumph on mine ('15 XRx). They're warm enough on the low setting for 3 season use and just about right on high setting for winter. Had the R&G heated grips on my old Tiger 1050, Bonnie SE, and Scrambler - they have 5 heat settings, 2 is toasty warm, 3, 4, and 5 are 1st, 2nd, and 3rd degree burns respectively. Had the 800 not come with OEM grips, I'd have used the R&G ones again.

My T120, incidentally, also has OEM heated grips on and they seem fine, though I haven't given them as much of an outing as the Tiger.
Tiger 800 XRx, Bonneville T120 Black, SpeedTona, Speed Dent
Gone but not forgotten: Scrambler 900, Tiger 1050, Bonneville SE, Sprint ST 955i, Trophy 4, Sprint 900, Daytona 900, Tiger 900, Trident 900

The 2019 XR and XC models all have 34amp alternators. The XRT has heated grips and heated seats but LED lighting, which would reduce the overall load.
