I am thinking of getting these put on the MP3.

I think it will make the longer trips a little more comfortable/safer by keeping the hands warm.

Thoughts?

The question with electrical accessories, especially heated items like grips or a jacket, is whether your scooter's charging system can handle the additional load. You need to consider the total power required by the grips and any other accessories like lights that you've added. Someone here can probably tell you the MP3's capacity.

no worries installing heated grips. I have had them installed now since 2008 and no issues ever. I have also installed them for clients as well.

I only use "hot grips" brand as they are the absolute best on the market.
http://www.hotgrips.com

your grips are 4 3/4 long on 7/8 bars.

I like the 475-875 grip kit the best. these grips don't deteriorate like some of the cheaper ones like oxfords and other chinese stuff out there on the market. They are made in the USA and have excellent lifetime warranty.

do your research for sure on them for sure. read the back story on jim hollander the developer of the "hot grips".

I thought of getting them installed on my 2019 model. Held off for the time being but may consider them later. They would be the original piaggio model for the 500hpe.

I'm thinking of getting them added before I pick up. That and maybe the extra storage.
