Heated Grips ???

I was just reading on ( Honda Worldwide | CTX | Comfort Technology Revealed ) and they mentioned that heated handlebar grips are great in the cold, and LED lights are effective at night. I know the CTX's have LED lighting but do they come with factory heated grips ? I haven't traveled to WI yet to pick up my CTX1300 deluxe.
Can any fellow 1300 deluxe owners tell me if yours came with factory heated grips ? I know it has the other electronic's (ABS brakes, traction control, blue tooth, self canceling blinkers, etc.) but wasn't aware of OEM heated grips.

You can find them for a little less on-line.

@Raw Bone , As said the USA models do not have heated grips installed. Only the non-USA models have heated grips and a center stand from the factory. Also, there is only one model available outside the USA and that is the deluxe with the extra items mentioned. The standard version is only available in the USA.

I usually wear gloves when riding in the cold. Try those first.

Heated grips in the USA (CTX Deluxe) are a dealer installed option (unless you're the adventurous type and do it yourself).

Certainly not essential, but they've allowed me to keep using my thin summer gloves into Nov and are comfy riding the high country during cold rain and the odd hailstorm.

Here in the UK,mine came with heated grips as standard but then I think only the deluxe is available i the UK.
I would have thought (wrongly most times) that all deluxe models would have heated grips as standard.

My Deluxe came with the heated grips installed. The previous owner had the dealer install them along with all of the other accessories available for the CTX. I too enjoy them because it allows me to use my summer gloves during cool weather rides. I don't ride in cold weather. I got over that years ago. Hehehehe
If you ride where the mornings are cool to cold you will enjoy having them. They are pricey
They do tie into the display that shows what level they are at and whether they are on or off. They really heat up fast. Most of the time I can feel them in less than a minute.

The question is if the CTX1300 comes with heated grips installed from the factory. As mentioned before, the models sold new from the factory in the USA do not. Outside the USA they do come new from the factory installed. If a PO added the oem heated grips accessory kit is not the issue... unless, of course, Raw Bone is talking about picking up a used bike.
