Exide Technologies has launched its new Exide Motorbike and Sport battery range. This comes with the new Exide Li-Ion, an ultra-lightweight lithium-ion battery. The new range also includes four best-in-class lead-acid technologies: Exide GEL, AGM Ready, AGM and Conventional. The product packaging has been redesigned, and new types of AGM Ready have been introduced from the company’s OE business.
Exide Li-Ion is up to 80 percent lighter than a lead-acid battery. This reduces the weight of the bike, allowing faster acceleration and a better riding experience, according to Exide. The battery offers super-fast recharging and very low self-discharge, ideal for seasonal bikers, the company adds. Other benefits include first-class safety features, extended cycle life and multi-position mounting. It comes ready to use straight out of the box and requires no maintenance.
Exide Gel, derived from Exide’s OEM business, was both invented and manufactured in Europe, and provides impressive cycle life, safety features, high vibration resistance and deep-discharge protection. It also handles power-hungry electrical equipment easily and is entirely maintenance-free. Exide AGM Ready offers maximum power, extended cycle life and high vibration resistance, and is designed for high-performance motorbikes.
The new product packaging has a sleek, user-centered design. Product benefits and features are described on the box, useful for both consumers and professionals in selecting the right battery. The box also features a QR code, which connects you to a mobile-optimized website where you find detailed product information and biking tips. Exide has a wide range of accessories and support for motorcyclists, including fitment information, battery-testing tool, charger and the Exide Battery Finder smartphone app.
