No Kawi has yet to offer heated grips. We complained about it to Kawasaki.

I've got 16K miles on the bike. Love it. Changed the windshield to make it more Goldwing like. Added a VStream and find it performing really well.

The Motorcycle Consumer News article really slammed the C14. Don't believe they were unbiased. They complained the brakes were too strong. Did not like the engine even though it was fastest in all the tests.

Kawi limited the power delivery down low with a second set of Butterflies. They don't really open till after 6K RPM. People have removed the flies and have near ZX14 performance with the comfort of a Touring bike. Nice low maintenance shaft drive. Easy oil changes. Can't say enough about the bike.
