Product Description

The 8 Cell EVO2 model is our primary product. The 8 Cell model will work with everything from 450cc MX bikes to 1000cc multi-cylinder motorcycles. This battery is robust, impact resistant, water resistant, and has more starting punch than 90% of all the powersports lead-acid batteries available. Most motorcycles in this range use an OEM battery that weighs up to 10.7lbs. The 8 Cell Ballistic Performance Components EVO2 Battery weighs a little over 1.5lbs. That is a weight savings of 9.3lbs for less than $160! If your powersports vehicle has a modified motor or operates in extreme conditions then we would recommend upgrading to the 12 Cell for added durability.

5Great battery
By Dan Drove
Needed new battery for motorcycle and this delivers. Figure $90+ for a good gel battery why not get this with 3 year warranty, and if you take care of it you're looking at possibly 7 years of life. One thing that is a minor annoyance is the terminals are opposite of what I needed. I installed battery facing inboard to have terminals on proper side. A little tight to make connections but it works. I don't know if it is available with in a - + configuration vs the + - I got. If it is I didn't see it during the ordering process of the battery.

4Bitter Sweet Buy
By Dennis D.
Long story short, I more or less got one of the few (if not the only) dud from the factory line. The battery would not start my bike (2002 Yamaha R1) in the cold mornings no matter how many cranks it produced. To its credit, it kept cranking the bike like a champion no matter how many times and how long I held the starter button down. But it wasn't until the temps got up just enough from the morning that the bike would start. I swapped the old lead acid battery back on the bike, and I never had the problem again.

Ballistic Performance has been outstanding in their customer service via email and phone. Ultimately, I returned the battery to the local store I purchased it from, and Ballistic made sure that the retailer shipped the battery to them immediately for testing. Ballistic kept me updated throughout via email, leading to the same conclusion that while the battery passed all metering tests with flying colors, it did have intermittent problems in starting th eir bike (Aprilia Tuono).

I rated the product Four Stars at this point due to Ballistic Peformance's outstanding customer service, and for a very well-finished product. Despite the faulty starting performance of the battery, it was clearly well-constructed and finished, and is truly a very lightweight replacement to the standard lead acid batteries. I couldn't give it Five Stars due to my luck of the draw, but I wouldn't hesitate to try Ballistic Performance again when I'm ready to have another go at it.

5Game changer!
By John McElfresh
I bought a 8 cell for my CBR1000RR with a host of additional electronics, including an alarm, Dynojet fuel injection module, quickshifter, a gear position indicator and a wired-in radar detector connection.So my bike draws more than a stock CBR1000RR does.

I got my battery very quickly in the mail, and was excited to install it. I was dismayed to find it would not crank like it did with the stock battery, but the weight saving was incredible. I thought my charging system might be bad on the bike.

So I ordered the balancing charger from Ballistic to optimize my battery and as soon as I hooked it up, the problem was obvious. Two of the 8 cells were not registering any voltage at all. I called Ballistic, spoke to the president on his cell phone, and he was awesome.

He immediately apologized (but hey, I understand; things like this happen occasionally) and sent me out a new one just as fast as he hung up with me complete with tracking number. That is great customer service!

One thing to remember; this 8-cell battery started my bike on only 6 cells every time. I am fully confident that the replacement will be fine and the Ballistic Balancing Battery Charger will allow you to see exactly what each cell is doing. A stock battery with a dead cell would have left me stranded.

I highly recommend this battery, it gave me more room in my battery box to relocate my alarm module there and free up precious space under the passenger seat. If you had an '05 CBR1000RR with an underseat exhaust you would know exactly what I meant!
