I hope this means something along the lines of the G650X-bikes, if not a real middleweight adventure bike. The KTM 690/Husqvarna 701 needs some competition.

Yeah, I have heated grips on my 800GS and am too spoiled with them; can't give them up as I move to the 690. Did you get the heated element kit or the complete grips from KTM?
