Track/race bikes are really the best application for these LiIon batts, where a few lbs of weight savings might possibly make some difference. For most street bikes, I'm not sure the expense is worth it. Just know that these LiIon batts won't take the sustained heavy discharging abuse a good lead acid can. That's why Shorai list them with "PbEQ" CCA ratings. Supposedly "Lead Acid battery equivalent" ratings, but in reality no where close. Well maintained, well running bikes are fine, but if you have an old rat bike that don't run well, it's prolly not the best use of these batts.

I do think it's good technology and will prolly eventually replace lead acid. For now, you will have to have the early adopter mentality - or a track/race bike - to justify paying premium for one.
