Performance and lightweight battery

I'm looking to see if there is a forum consensus on a high performance and light weight battery for the 1199. I tried to do a google search on it, as not to flood the forum and rehash threads, but could only find varying opinions on a brand on Ducati MS.

Thanks in advance on a direction...

Wonder why no one seems to ever mention ballistic evo2 batteries. Had one on my daytona 675 n those things weigh like 2 lbs and go months without having to start the bike.

shorai LFX14A2-BS12 (no need for modification I believe) OR
LFX14A1-BS12 but you have to modify the battery case as it is taller than oem

Not sure about the battery tender mark but I know you don't need to charge shorai as often or even at all at least that's what I read don't have it yet ...

Shorai charger

Yes, you need a Shorai-specific charger/tender. Look at my pics on Panigale Picture Thread pg. 71 for a few shots of how I camouflaged the charger. Also, look below for a quick shot.

The Shorai I put in mine weighs half of what the OEM battery weighs. It's "nearly fits" which means you have to switch the (-) cable for the OEM cable plus or minus a zip tie for extra stability. (MOTOWHEELS provides the cable.) Easy switch. Motowheels is good about talking you through the swap.

Don't quote me on this, but if I heard correctly, Motowheels is getting an 1199-specific Shorai battery, one that is the right size for the compartment. So...may not need the above jerry-rigging.

Shorai charger/tender attached:
