Motorcyclists are looking for quality batteries that feature power performance and freedom from maintenance. AutoX provides two types of motorcycle batteries, also referred to as motorbike batteries, namely valve-regulated lead-acid (VRLA) maintenance-free and vented batteries. These products are also utilised in all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) and quad bikes.
Our VRLA maintenance‑free batteries are permanently sealed and do not require refilling.

Motorcycle batteries often fail prematurely due to the way in which the motorcycle is used. The most common reasons that contribute to early failure are:
1. The motorcycle stands for long periods of time. The battery discharges resulting in sulphation of the active material on the battery plates.
2. Using the motorcycle for short distances results in the charging system not fully recharging the battery, therefore the battery becomes discharged.
3. Running extra electrical accessories on the motorcycle, causing the battery to drain much quicker.
4. Incorrectly installed accessories and/or wiring.
Whilst in service in a motorcycle, the battery is charged by the motorcycle alternator. Should the battery become discharged after for example a long period of non-use, we recommend that the battery be charged using an external intelligent charger to fully restore state of charge.
