Default Has Honda released the electrical specs?

Hi,
I was wondering if anyone knows where to find specs that show what wattage & amperage the alternator puts out and how much wattage and amperage the bike draws when running.

The reason being is that I want to know beforehand if the charging system can handle heated grips that draw 48 watts & 4 amps at the highest setting along with a vest that draws 45 watts & three amps.

I know the vest by itself will be fine but I'd like to know if the grips will or won't work first before spending $90 and having to find out the hard (expensive) way.

It's a lot to ask of a little bike. Heck, it's a lot to ask of most bikes big or small so I certainly wouldn't be put off if it hasn't the juice.

Edit: Sorry about the title, I thought I removed the year make model thing. I thought wrong

Rider Magazine says 340 watt @5000rpm charging capacity.

Don't know how much it uses, though. Google doesn't care to enlighten me. I'd like to know, too.

Thank You for that info.

340 watts doesn't sound like a lot but I think it's enough.

I can't fathom all the electrics (lights, dash, computer etc..) taking more than 200 watts. For safety sake I'll assume 240 leaving 100 watts to spare which would be plenty for grips & vest (93 watts, 7.3 amps total).

There's still a little oomph left for a gps (if I had one) which requires barely any wattage at all.

I just won't ever toy with the idea of installing external lights (70-110 watts) or use a full sleeve heated liners (65-90 watts depending on brand & model).
