Yamaha added the cost effective range of BS Batteries to its Genuine Yamaha parts line-up, now available through its Authorised dealer network for all Yamaha models.
The winter period is typically a time when a lot of motorcycle owners put their bike into hibernation until spring. However, whilst this may avoid the inevitable impact of the seasonal conditions on external parts of a motorcycle, one component that can often be over-looked but will degrade over time if not suitably maintained, is the battery.
Many owners will make use of an Optimate to maintain their batterys health, but for some owners who keep their bike outside, this is not practical and a battery will eventually need replacing.
You get what you pay for when it comes to replacement parts, but in the case of BS Batteries, you get a whole lot more for your money. With the introduction of the economy line-up of BS Batteries to its Genuine Yamaha Parts range, the new products not only complement the premium OEM-fitment Yuasa products, but they also allow Yamaha to cater for its customers who have a much broader range of budgets and requirements, without sacrificing quality.
Key benefits for the new BS Batteries range include:
• Prefilled and factory activated – fit and go
• No acid handling for safety
• Extended service life with a higher lifecycle
• High specification and quality engineering developed through OEM supply
• Very competitive prices
With prices starting from £14.69 (including VAT), the new BS Battery range provides high quality engineering and specification at an affordable price.

Installation was a doddle in just a few minutes, battery was delivered fully charged.
We tested the BS battery on our FZ6-N, it held the charge well when unused for 2 weeks and delivered a strong current when turning the bike over. Motorcycle owners are always weary of buying genuine parts from the manufacturer, especially during times of economic uncertainty so this move by Yamaha is most welcome and hopefully a move closely followed by other manufacturers resulting in lower prices for all bike owners.
