  • Selecting a Battery for Yamaha Enticer

    Hey guys, any idea which battery I should get for my Enticer?

    The specs say it uses a 12v 2.5A; and my mechanic recommends the same. He also says Exide is the best bet and tata has some issues.

    I checked with the local dealer and he only has Tata's better that is of 12.4V and 3A

    Any one has knowledge on this?


    The Yamaha India site has no info on the enticer at all and Exide Battery site doesn't have the bike in its list.

      Your battery type is "flooded lead acid" which is the most common type . Many makes and even localy made ones are available . Better to get Exide or SFSonic ( also made by exide , but cheaper at around ₹400 ) of same specs as original . ie 2.5ah 12v standard lead acid motorcycle battery . You'll find it at any Exide battery shop or any large motorcycle parts shop nearby .

        I had bad experience with my exide maintenance free battery. Though it is a maintenance free it leaked or overflown. Since it was under warranty they replaced it. I paid extra money and bought Amaron maintenance free which has a gel electrolyte. So no worry about leaks.

          I think you should go with the amaron (if available) as it is offering 36 months warranty on its product and it really works hard till the end..
