The other mod was fitting a set of KTM Hard Parts heated grips (available through dealers; $100). I’d been meaning to do that for a few weeks but was really glad I did for two trips into Arizona for separate press intros; there, the grips paid for themselves in comfort even though I never used them on the highest setting, which seems strong enough for an Austrian winter. And while the installation was fairly straightforward, I discovered that the supplied handlebar bracket for the controller didn’t fit the SM-T’s bar. So I made my own from a scrap of aluminum and a cushioned clamp. Be aware, though, the LEDs indicating the four heat settings are set into the controller face, meaning they’re impossible to see unless you aim them right at you. I learned that on the first daylight ride. Oh, well.
