The #motoWolverine or xBhp’s Suzuki GSX-S1000, which is one of the world’s finest liter-class street bikes, yesterday visited Big Motorcycle Company’s EagleRider New Delhi showroom yesterday for some performance enhancing therapy sessions that included a serious weight reduction procedure as well.
The weight reduction came in the form of installation of a super light weight lithium battery from Deltran Battery Tender in place of the conventional lead-acid battery which comes as stock with the bike. Not only this lithium battery is considerably lighter than the stock one, it is very compact as well. The corresponding Deltran Battery Tender lithium battery weighs only 800 g compared to a 3.5 kg stock battery, which means a reduction of around 2.5 kg in the overall weight of the bike in one go.
This 14 amp lithium battery by Deltran Battery Tender retails at 15,000 INR and comes with a 3 year warranty period, out of which the first 2 years is full replacement warranty. It can be bought either directly from EagleRider New Delhi’s showroom in Gurugram or their online touch point here .
Here’s what Deltran Battery Tender has to say about these batteries
We got a bunch of other Deltran Battery Tender accessories as well to take care of other battery-related issues that may arise in our motorcycles. Out of these accessories, the coolest one being this portable jump starter cum power bank. This little thing packs around 400 cranking Amps and weighs less than 1 pound. When not being used as a jump starter, it can be used as a power bank. And it is so compact that it can easily fit in one of the smaller pockets in your backpack. It also has an LED charging indicator and a small but bright LED bulb in the front to work as an LED torch. The cost of this jump starter is 14,000 INR and it can be bought from here

Then we also got a Deltran Battery Tender 800 battery charger. This compact 800 mA battery charger incorporates highly efficient surface mount technology electronic components. The interior is completely encapsulated, protected from shock, vibration, and moisture by an electrically insulating, thermally conductive, flame retardant, synthetic epoxy resin compound.
This charger is no larger than a standard computer mouse. Coupled with an IC chip, the charger will constantly monitor, charge, and then maintain your battery! This product is available for INR 4200 and can be bought from here

Then we had this little thing called Digital Voltage Indicator with LCD display by Deltran Battery Tender, which helps you monitor the voltage output of your battery. It is no bigger than a cigarette lighter and has got a tiny LCD screen that displays battery voltage when the button is pressed. There are 3 different color LEDs as well, which glow depending upon the voltage of the battery; for example,
GREEN: Battery Charged (Greater than 12.0V)
YELLOW: Battery is Low (11.6 to 12.0V)
RED: Battery is Discharged (Less than 11.6V)
This handy little thing is retailing at 1700 INR here
Then we had this Deltran Battery Tender USB Charger to charge any electronic devices like smartphones, tablets, GPS tracker, etc. This charger is available for INR 1250 here
Once the demand for ‘power’ was met, we went on shopping for the stuff needed to control that power and ended up getting the CL High Performance Racing Brake Fluid along with the CL C60 Racing Brake pads. CL (Carbone Lorraine) have been world leaders in making performance brake pads for all kinds of motorcycling needs, ranging from racing to enduro to street to off road use.

And last but not the least, we picked up this Vulcanet waterless bike wash system to keep the bike shining like new all the time, and boy were we impressed by this product! It felt like a perfect accessories when you are out somewhere and you don’t want to see your bike dirty! Particularly very handy for us when we are out there shooting a new bike and we want to clean it but don’t have access to water or a bike cleaning garage.
