Heat grips with 'on/start/off' (Burning hot)

I need to find what brand of heated grips I've used before on a rental motorbike I rode about 6 years ago.

The grips had 3 settings: On (left) Start (middle) Off (right)
It was a dial.

I could run these on Start and boy were they hot, burning hot in fact. I need that. I have tried two different sets of grips on my bike in the US that people swore were hot and well guess what, they weren't. I have Raynauds so what works for others won't be enough for me.

This may be a popular brand in Europe
Sorry no photos.

Heated gloves might be a better solution, honestly. They'll keep your whole hand warm, not just the palms. When i had heated grips, i found i was SQUEEZING my grips to get heat... I hated that.

A friend just picked up a Ktm 990 adv with that style controller on the grips. He's in Vegas right now, but I should be able to pull a brand, or at least get a picture of them when he gets back.

I have those too, the heated gloves are amazing.
But this is about redundancy (when I hit cold weather I didn't expect)

Only 3 speed with a "quick start" setting. Could this be the one?

Looks like they are only available with the 2 speed control from where you found them. Ebay and others show Daytona brand with an electronic 3 speed control. They probably have changed the product since you last saw it?

I'm looking for a set of hot grips as well, this is good info.

I really like these because you begin with start and the grips get super hot fast, which is good if your hands are frozen solid, then turn it down to On and it's just the right amount of heat. (you can feel it through a padded/winter glove)
