Ballistic Performance 8 Cell EVO2 Battery

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.

  • Dimensions: 112MM (L) x 60MM (W) x 103MM (H)
  • Available with the Negative Terminal on the Right or Left
  • Weight: 825 grams (1.81 lb)
  • Voltage (Charged): 13.6V
  • Amperage: 15 Pbeq A/H
  • Cold Cranking Amps: 275 CCA
  • Operating Environment: -18°C (0°F) to 60°C (140°F)
  • Typical Applications: 1000cc and under multi-cylinder motorcycles and 450cc singles.

Note: Ballistic Batteries may not be a drop in replacement, some modification to battery box, terminals etc may be necessary. See Ballistic / Yuasa Comparison charts below for detailed measurements and weights.

Your powersports vehicle is the pinnacle of modern technology. It is made with the latest lightweight, high tech materials to be the most high performance vehicle on the road, lake, track or trail. You have modified your powersports vehicle with the best in carbon fiber, titanium, and magnesium in an effort to gain every last ounce of performance. Yet, under your seat is a heavy hunk of lead that was designed in the mid 1800’s.

Ballistic Performance Component Batteries use the latest, state of the art lithium ferrous energy storage technology available to provide you with a smaller, lighter, higher energy battery.

Ballistic Performance 8 Cell EVO2 Battery 3.9 5 30 30
Expensive but worth it...so far I bought the Ballistic 8-Cell EVO2 battery because I was sick of the traditional/ancient lead acid batteries. I don't race so the weight savings doesn't really appeal to me too much but it really is significantly lighter. The smaller size is nice but it actually make's it a little more awkward with battery straps and cables being far too loose now. On the other hand, the small size made it possible for me to twist my connection points to get to the terminals. Which brings me to my next point, it would be nice if Ballistic made the batteries with reversed posts for those bikes that don't have the space to flip the battery in a different orientation to make it fit. Those are small potatoes though because the power output on this battery is noticeably better than my past lead acid batteries. I've never had my bike start up faster, and has plenty of juice for my 750cc Ducati Monster. I honestly haven't had it installed for very long or started up in really cold conditions so I might have to report back in a year or so with more durability testing, but based on first impressions, this is definitely a huge improvement from the old days. Lastly, the price is quite steep and I don't really know if it's worth it yet, but I can tell you it will probably be very difficult for me to switch back to a lead acid once this one eventually dies. Overall, I am very pleased with the battery so far and would recommend it to anyone that is just fed up with old battery technology. April 23, 2014
Works great in warmer weather but watch out for the cold Bought this since I wanted to try a smaller battery and my Yuasa was due for a replacement. I also got tired of hooking up my tender to it all the time and wanted to see what all the rave about with lithium batteries. Couldn't believe how small and light it was. It seems to work well in warmer temps and engine cranks up on the first try. However, cold weather starts really suck and I'm worried I might damage my sprague clutch when it cranks and winds down. I have to hit the starter a few times and wait in between each attempt to wait for the battery to "warm up". Once the battery is ready, it works as it should. I only recommend this battery for folks who live in warmer climate and I'll probably get a regular battery next time around. I also noticed (as they advertise) that no tender needs to be hooked up to it and I can let the bike sit for a long period of time to have the bike start up on the first try. April 28, 2014
not the ideal motorcycle battery Great concept, tech specs look good, but battery start-up performance thus far during the winter months is not good. My BMW F800GS is almost impossible to start in colder temps. Ballistic Performance has a video posted showing start-up procedure in colder weather, and my experience is no where near as good as what's shown in the video. Two to four minutes trying to start-up, with the bike electrical system and my GPS and other electronics gear continuously resetting, is not good. However, I have decided to keep the battery and see how it does in spring and summer (reinstalled old lead battery for the remainder of the winter). There is a tremendous weight savings with the Ballistic Performance battery, and that high on the bike the weight is definitely noticeable. Hopefully the battery will function in a more acceptable manner in 60+ degree temps. March 13, 2014
Technology is Awesome I was a little nervous about buying this. $150 is a nice chunk of cash. However, I am happy with my purchase. I checked the voltage of the battery after unboxing and it read an even 13.5 volts. I used some scrap, inch-thick neoprene to fill in all the extra space and to immobilize the battery. I did have to clip some plastic off from around the positive terminal to keep it from blocking the cable, but other than that, the install was painless. Fired up my 1983 Honda Nighthawk 650 on the first try. Plenty of juice. It's only the first day, but so far so good. Thanks, RevZilla! January 17, 2014
Nice and light! I have a 2010 Yamaha R6 Pros: Its about 10lbs lighter than the original It starts up nice and solid with my HID lights Cons: it was shipped to me with a weak charge, not sure if this was the battery its self or if its just been sitting on the shelf's for awhile (jump started my bike in 2nd and drove around the block and 'its fine' now... Works great but still makes me nervous) Not really a 'Con' but worth noting, The battery is smaller than the original dimension wise, but comes packed in a nice fitted pad of foam, I used the original battery as my template and cut the foam to match the dimensions so this new battery wouldn't get jostled around January 13, 2014
Do not buy! Ballistic Performance Components recommended a 12 cell EVO2 battery for my 2010 BMW R1200 GS Adventure. This battery would not reliably turn my engine over especially when the temperature was lower than 50 F. The dealer arranged a replacement for me to try again. This one too was too weak to crank over my 1200 cc boxer engine. After speaking with Ballistic, the owner himself replaced my 12 cell battery with the 16 cell battery. This worked ok but still had some problems when the temperature dropped below 35 F. On a recent long distance trip, the 16 cell battery suddenly failed and would not even turn over my engine. After returning the battery to Ballistic Performance Components, I was told that the battery was full of water and most likely had been submersed in water. The water caused the battery to short out. Now it is useless after 10 months and would not be covered under warranty. Here is the problem... My 16 cell battery was never submersed in water! In fact my bike was not even washed in this time period. I ride every day rain or shine. The owner could not tell me why the water was in the battery other than it MUST have been submersed in water. I believe that there was a flaw in the plastic housing such as a crack or poor weld that allowed wheel spray into the battery. How can Ballistic Performance Components sell a product that is advertised as impact and water resistant and that can be mounted in any position for any power sport? Evidently, this battery is not ready for prime time! Do not purchase! February 18, 2014
Good but not that great. Got a 12L for Christmas from the wife. Was 11.2V out of the box. Put it on my battery tender for a couple of days brought it to 13.8V. Sunday a week ago My wife and I were left stranded 45 miles outside San Antonio, TX with No Electrical power. After paying through the nose to the Kaw hauled Home I found that this $179.00 marvel was dead reading only 7.3V. Placed the battery from my Buell in the Kaw and it started. Checked the stator and regulator both static and running and both checked out. Now after sitting a week it reads 11.7V with out haveing seen a charger. If you want to be stranded this is the battery for you!!! Go with an AGM Product. January 27, 2014
So light Best bang for the buck for losing weight on your bike. It also only loses a few percent of the charge sitting stagnant over a year period. So its pretty legit. Ive got one in both my bikes. November 11, 2013

A shopper asked: Will the Ballistic 8 volt EVO2 fit in the battery compartment of a 2003 Yamaha FZ1? Feb 24, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: Your 2003 Yamaha FZ1 takes a YT14B-BS battery. According to Ballistic Performance's comparison chart linked in the product description, the 8 Cell is the correct one for your bike. It is a little smaller than a standard motorcycle battery so we would suggest getting some foam padding from a hobby shop and cut it to fill the space. May 2, 2012

Frost785: Dimensions (Standard): 4.5" (L) x 2.5" (W) x 4.25" (H)

just measure where your battery goes for me the batter was smaller then the space i cut some foam that came with the battery to keep it snug. Haven't even charged my battery once or even thought about it.
