You must get it fixed

You have done this with your heated grips. They draw a lot of current and you are killing the battery. Disconnect them. They need to connect to an ignition switched circuit with a separate fuse and switch. I don't think you are really up to doing this and it will not cost much to do. If you do it wrong you may end up causing a lot of damage and cost. If the grips have been on much time you may have damaged the battery already.

It may be that the ignition circuit is looped through the g/box and so if in gear the bike will not start, so check that out and also read the book that came with the bike!

take the bike back as its faulty

The alternator on that bike will not be good enough for powering current hngry accessories like heated grips. You have flattened the battery

Seems like when you wired the heated grips directly to the battery, they are constantly drawing power, perhaps to much for the bike to handle. One way to find out is to get a volt-meter and test the charging system with the heated grips connected up and switched ON. Voltage should be just above 12.8V at idle, and 13.5V-14.5V at 5000RPM. It's possible that the grips will need wiring up differently.

If brand new, take it back & claim under warranty.
