Lithium-ion batteries are common place in modern-day electronic devices, such as mobile phones and laptops, but are a fairly recent development in the motorcycle battery market. In motorcyle applications Li-ion batteries offer a range of advantages over their standard lead-acid counterparts, the most significant of which is that of weight saving.
By replacing a standard lead-acid battery with a JMT lithium-ion battery, up to 5 kg in weight can be saved at minimal expense
. Consider how much you would pay to shave a few kilos from your set-up by replacing your exhaust with a titanium one, or fitting light weight wheels - a total cost of £2000 would not be far off the mark. By fitting a Li-ion battery these weight savings can be achieved for a fraction of this cost.
Fast-charging capabilities mean that lithium-ion batteries can be charged at a massive 100x the standard lead-acid charging rate
allowing them to be fully charged from flat within about 90 minutes. Other advantages of Li-ion batteries include a low self discharge rate, and the ability to mount the battery in any orientation.
Despite the many advantages of litium-ion technology, these batteries do not perform well in sub-zero temperatures, making them unsuitable for year round use. See the lithium-ion batteries
section for further details of the pros and cons of Li-ion batteries. The particular JMT Li-ion battery in this listing is a YT9B-FP to fit the Ducati Panigale 1199 ABS (H800AB/H801AB) (2012)

- CCA: 190 [A]
- Length: 150 [mm]
- Width: 65 [mm]
