Pros: simplicity
Cons: price
" Battery was simple to put together, (battery fluid needed to be added and then battery lid fitted), and it had sufficient voltage to be fitted immediately and started my bike first go. As you would expect, I suppose. Price seems a bit on the high side but not excessively so, hence 3*'s. Only time will tell in terms of performance, again hence 3*'s. Its a Bosch product so it should be good. Based on other Bosch products, it got 4*'s. "

" It's difficult to review a battery, as time is the true measure of quality. But the Bosch unit is a good brand with a good heritage. Looks and feel is top quality. "

Pros: supplied with new fixings
Cons: difficulty in filling
" I needed a battery quick on a Sunday morning and Halfords had it in stock. I found it hard to attach the acid pack to the battery case and get all of it in the cells. After that though, it charged quick and I was able to fit and use it within 20 minutes. "

" my previous battery depsite being constantly on a 'trickle' charger, which always said that the battery was strong, it struggled to turn my Ducati 999 over. Bought this new battery and it spins the engine round much faster. "

Pros: a proven brand, value for money, excellent performance, excellent on cold mornings, haven't noticed a battery drain
Cons: buying any other generic bttery is a con
" For the money, AGM is the most cost effective battery you can buy, the Bosch branding gives you even greater peace of mind from a brand you can trust.
Initial filling is very straight forward and can be done by anyone with little or no skills, just remember to do it outside or in a well ventilated room. The instructions are very clear.
I fitted one to my Fazer 600 a few weeks ago, and the battery gives excellent cranking even at sub zero temps.
I have been a mechanic for 31 years, so I do have a fair ammount of experience, and when I have other branded choices available, Bosch is always my first choice.
