    Heated Grips for 2017 Tuono

    Hi All,

    Has anyone fitted heated grips to the 2017 Tuono. As you know, Aprilia doesn't make them for the tuono. Dealer tried to fit oxford grips but because of the cruise control on the left he said they wouldn't fit properly.

    Get heated gloves, i have factory fitted heated grips on both my bikes, but I'm thinking for next winter getting some rechargable battery powered gloves. I do a lot of winter riding.

    That's probably the best option, given my other bike hasn't got heated grips either. Thanks

    Have a look at this system:

    For me it is the best solution for bikes like the Tuono is.

    I don't how they work this out but R&G reckon you can fit these on the 2017 Tuono.

    Check out the Yamaha heated grips. They'll fit any 22mm bar and are certainly the best I've seen - totally integrated so no unsightly switches that you need to find a location for.

    (Edited for clarity)
    Where can we get those Yamaha Heated Grips?

    Hmmm actually searching via the internet gods I see the Yamaha grips are not well liked. Often have problems and dont get very hot. My research shows Koso Apollo grips are similar style to the Yamaha but hotter and better.

    I have Daytona Grips fitted to my 2015 Tuono Factory. And I fitted some Heated grips to my mates 2017 Tuono Factory 2 weeks ago. But....

    The Daytona fit the 2015 and 2016 and ALSO the 2017 Factory. However the Oxford grips he had didnt quite fit. So we put the Daytona on.

    The new sleeve on the 2017 throttle is slightly wider in diameter than the 2015/16 bikes and the Oxford wouldnt fit. So we ended up installing some Daytona grips as they had a wider ID by about 1mm on the throttle grip of the heated grip.

    Something you might look into before trying to install a heated grip. I was looking at putting on a Rizoma grip on my '17, but was told that because the throttle by wire is integrated into the grip that it couldn't be done. Not sure how true this is, just something you might look into before pulling the stock grips off.

    They gave you incorrect info as I have installed a heated grip on my mates 2017 Tuono and it is exactly the same process as normal. Nothing different at all to the process or set up.

    However.... NOTE. The 2017 throttle sleeve is a fraction wider in OD than the 2016. So some heated grips will struggle to fit, especially if the heated grip has a solid plastic sleeve inserted into the actual in the heated grip. Oxford has this so there is no extra give in it and it wouldnt fit. Daytona grips dont have this problem.

    I like the look of the Koso Apolo grips personally.
