Hi,
I searched and found one unanswered request for the above item on the forum. Since that was in 2014, I'm asking for any ideas or products anyone has found to use on a BV 350 to keep the hands warm.
Thanks in advance for suggestions.

How about a larger Givi windshield? They appear to cover the hands.

I'm using the large GIVI windshield, that alone does not cut all the wind. I also use the Tucano Urbano muffs, this is good to the low 30's. Then I need the heated grips no gloves. I did put brake lever covers spongie grip material on the cold levers.

I have the larger Givi windshield, bar mitts, heavy winter gloves, and liner gloves. My fingers still freeze.

I'm considering picking up a pair of heated gloves.

What bar mits are you using? How long is your ride?

I use these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0158I9KGI/

My ride is right at 12 miles. Just over half is at 45+ mph, the rest is at about 30mph.

Part of the issue is genetics. My fingers are always cold. I get it from my dad. Growing up, my brothers and I never had to do the dishes as a chore, because my dad always did them so he could keep his hands warm in the hot water of the sink.

Those look just right for my riding here in Northern California. It's usually not very cold, just cold enough that a wind break would work fine.
I wonder if they're available here in the 'states?

Why not get Koso heated grips. I use them on the GTS along with the Tucano Urbano muffs, between the two I have not put on any gloves as of yet this winter and just rode back home this evening when it was 26F.
I have a pair of heated gloves but I havent used them as it makes holding the handles clumsy.The heated grips have been good though after a year of use, this season they are not putting out the same amount of heat they did when I first installed them.

I am not aware of the BV's grips being bigger or longer etc, but the Tucano muffs have enough room to be pulled over the grips, once it is slid in over the grip and the brake levers then it is held by the bolt that holds the bar weights.
There is a plastic piece that velcros over on the front.
I'd say get it and or call the dealer who carries it and find out, worst case you may have to return them.
I just rode to work 18F with a 10mph hour wind, but it wasn't bad, wore no gloves. It only was bit of any issue holding the brake levers from time to time as it is cold metal. (I have to figure a way out to keep them warm, think I might get some carbon tape and run it over the levers and connect it to the same place as the grips)

I have them on my BV350 ezpeezy to install. I was thinking about getting them for my 200, but that is the warm weather bike.

Mine are dum faded a bit, I never cover my bike.

That does look comfy with the wide windscreen and covers!
No gloves and you're warm Nice.
The aluminum brake handles are great for conducting heat from your hand to the outdoors. Tape will help, I would think.

Did these OEM guards ever become available and if so is there a part # or where to order?

I'm wanting to add some my BV350 and like that simple look & coverage as I have heated grips too.

Not interested in the Tucano Urbana setup.

Following. I've been on the lookout for Piaggio accessories for the 2018, but I honestly might just suck it up and get some heated grips that I can turn off. What a hassle it is go get accessories for this bike!

Searches come up blank so I guess that accy was a no go.

Barkbuster makes a nice bar end mount only Storm hand guard by not cheap. Acerbis makes an expensive plastic one.

Beyond that there are single mount point flag style guards from PowerMadd but they need some open bar.

I'm really happy with my stock shield and the Ebay laminar flow shield add on that I don't want to mess with a barn door Givi shield. Wind flow is perfect and thus these handguards would complete the package for year round use.

The search goes on. I'm going to work next on the idea of attacking something to the bar cover plastic and create a wind block with that.
Some heat moldable kydex and high strength velco might be the ticket.

That is a clamp on laminar style add on, a cheap Naca duct.
It's an eBay copy of a MRA or Puig.
The top adjuster keeps poping out so I Gorilla glued it fixed, but the placement is ideal. I added some 3M protectors as it was noisy slapping the shield. Dam perfect laminar air flow at my helmet, maybe even better than a Givi Airflow system like on mp3

Behind there is a Ram ball on that center mount and a Hondo Garage perfect squeeze cell phone mount...the best in the world!

I have heated grips and that does help a ton, but the real trick is heated grips and handguards. That way you can wear the same lightweight gloves year round. I have some nice Klims I love.

You'll want slim gloves anyway as heated grips are wider than sticker.

Go for Koso heated grips, great design.

Anything that is squeezing your phone to hold it is not the best. Drop your bike and that phone will become a projectile in most cases and why I like the Grip Lock phone mount. It locks in place.

You actually ever use a perfect squeeze with a buzz kill or is that just your broad opinion w/o first hand knowledge?

These are BDR proven so I'm not worried about some small scooter having any affect on it.

No I use physics, something that GRIPS can not hold as good as something the sticks with quality 3M double sided tape to your phone and then you push and twist your phone to lock it in place.
I have seen the same concept device from RAM drop phone.

As The Dude says "yeah well that's just like eh your opinion man"

These are WELL proven by BDR, BAJA and off road racers...your phone stays put. It also has a sticky back pad too.

Seems these are only sold in Greece right now with part #
1B006174

Very odd as I would suspect these would be most popular in colder places.

Anyone find anything else or a supplier to the US?
Price is less than aftermarket options.and it looks great.
Will this fit a regular BV350 with a shield?

So is that just a country model specific version of the BV?
No shield. Looks the same for the rest, with some subtle differences.
In the US the turn signals are not running light integrated.
Don't think any turn signal interfere is there

How about the bar end parts where this would bolt up to???
That's the big factor.

The email with the new "Sport Allure" accessories catalogue came to us in December 2nd, so I assume the accessories will be available elsewhere in the following months. Piaggio says they are compatible with the 300 & 350 models...

Are you a dealer who ships elsewhere? Or just an end user?

Does that shop ship to the US by chance?
I'd order one asap. My wife's hands need it, it's cold here.

So the bar end weight (between the grip and handguard mount) on that green bike is shorter for sure.

I wonder if that is included in this handguard kit as a replacement for the stock bar end?
Or does that specific model have that smaller part stock and thus you need to buy that too?
