My Royal Enfield Motorcycle Battery Replacement for the First Time

Exide Bikerz Battery for Royal Enfield Thunderbird

Two years, 25,744 km odometer reading when I replaced the first battery of my Royal Enfiled Thunderbird Twinspark motorcycle. Exide MX Freedom was the first battery with the brand new motorcycle. Warranty card says: Warranty period is of 12 months or 10,000 km whichever is earlier. I crossed both ways ahead and smiled. Thanks to Exide.

I remember (until I replace the battery) I never had any sort of issue with the Exide MX Freedom battery. It was working fine, but the only issue was it was not able to support Electric Start for the last few days, thus I had to check. I visited the Exide showroom. Freedom was tested via Battery HRD Tester and the result – Bad (Weak, Good, Bad there are three options). I inquire about Exide MX Freedom. Not available as it is only with a new motorcycle provided by the company. What to do? Exide of course, the choice again.

Two options: Exide Backer or Exide Bikerz. The first one is 6 month’s warranty and the price is less. Exide Bikerz is with 15 months warranty. I opt for Exide Bikerz. And for Old battery return, Rs. 180/- deduction is another benefit. Total I pay Rs. 2400/-. Battery replaced.
