Faced with the extreme price of OEM Harley Davidson batteries, when the original battery failed many riders downgraded to a cheaper, but less powerful alternative pattern battery resulting in poor performance and starting problems.
Now Nitro have released a high power range of batteries designed specifically for Harley Davidson motorcycles, with all the juice needed for great starting and performance, and even featuring the same Harley Davidson style terminals.
Nitro’s ‘HVT’ range for Harley Davidsons use the latest AGM technology. AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat) batteries are more resilient, and resistant to damage from knocks or vibration. The batteries are factory sealed and suitable for applications where the battery is installed on its side – using an incorrect, low-cost battery fitment in this situation could result in a serious risk of acid spillage. As all Nitro ‘HVT’ batteries are already filled and sealed, there’s no need for the fiddly and potentially dangerous job of filling the battery with acid, and conveniently, they’ll never need topping up.
As with all lead acid batteries these batteries will need to be kept on a charger when the motorcycle isn’t in use, and we highly recommend the BC Battery Controllers which are approved for use with AGM batteries.
