BS Battery Lithium - Inventory-Friendly 12-Model Market Coverage

As announced during the Drag Specialties and Parts Unlimited North American NVP Expo in Madison, Wisconsin, in August, following five years of collaboration with Parts Europe, French battery manufacturer BS Battery is now selling to dealers in USA through the LeMans distribution center network.

Well known in Europe as an OEM and aftermarket vendor, BS Battery offers a very wide range of battery solutions and options for all powersports industry applications: motorcycle, V-twin, SSV, ATV, UTV, snowmobile and watercraft.

"Focusing on innovation, we are investing a lot into lithium batteries," says General Manager Benjamin Sebban. "Since 2017 we have been collaborating with technical teams in all motorcycle racing activities - road race, Enduro and Rally - to test our products under extreme racing conditions before they are offered for sale to our distributors and their dealers.

"This means that we are able to improve performance and quality consistently. After many years of collaboration with the OEM and race team communities, we’ve decided to focus our continuing investment into lithium batteries with a specific approach.

"We have designed a unique, ultra-resistant casing that can resist up to 230°C, including ultra-robust terminals, to make sure our batteries can be used in extreme conditions. Because our DNA is in racing, we know how to design for the toughest environments and most demanding applications, and that experience has informed these new developments." 

The inventory-friendly BS Battery Lithium range covers most of the existing powersports model fitments in the market - with just 12 models of battery. From 12.8 voltage up to 560 CCA (A), small, lighter weight (up to 70% lighter than lead acid batteries) and maintenance-free, long lifetime solutions to high discharge rate and waterproof designs and features like integral voltage indicators to check the state of charge. 

"Approved and used by many top race teams, the BSLi02 battery is the right answer to the most demanding riders looking for higher performance, high resistance and high longevity," says Benjamin.
