My Aprilia Futura 1000cc V-twin doesn’t like batteries recommended by the factory and when using them it struggles to start and usually kills them within 2 years. It also likes to leave me stranded costing $400 for tow trucks and the embarrassment comes free of charge. One of my co-workers is using your batteries for his airplane and recommended your batteries. At first, I cringed when I saw the price $260, I thought that it was way overpriced. But 3 years later, reliable starts even in the northeast cold weather……well….I guess you get what you pay for. Yes, it starts without issues. Your recommendation for theAaprilia 1000cc V-twins is for a ETX-18. I went one step up for the 20 degree cold weather starts. Thank you EarthX for putting out there a reliable and well made product. There are many people out there, including myself, that prefer American made quality products over cheap, inferior and sometimes dangerous batteries from overseas.
3 years later…..love my EarthX
