Hello,

My name is a Chip Spalding and I am one of the owners of Ballistic Performance Components (Ballistic Performance Components) and I also manage KWS Motorsports (KWS MOTORSPORTS N. CHARLESTON, SC (843) 552-7177) and we are a new advertiser here!

KWS Motorsports is a full service customer race shop that has been in the business of building race bikes since 1994. We have also run a professional race team since 1999. In 2001 we won the FUSA Unlimited Superbike National Championship, in 2003 we won the Top Privateer Award in AMA Superbike, and in 2009 we ran the Factory Aprilia AMA Daytona SportBike team with riders Chaz Davies and Aaron Gobert.

In our quest to get weight out of our 2009 Aprilia RSV1000R race bikes we started researching lightweight battery technology. We used some existing vendors but were not happy with the product so we started to develop our own. In an effort to make this technology available to our customers we formed Ballistic Performance Components with our long term partners, Millennium Technologies. This combination of KWS Motorsports extensive hands on professional racing experience and Millennium Technologies industry leading manufacturing capabilities lead to what we believe is one of the best powersports products on the market today, the Ballistic Performance Components EVO 2 Battery.

The new EVO 2 battery is the sum of over 16 months of building, testing, and developing batteries for our own race bikes and feed back from our customers. The EVO 2 uses custom made proprietary cells, cases, and connectors that are made specifically for the purpose of starting motorcycles. This is not a collection of commercially available generic parts wrapped in shrink wrap and assembled in somebody’s garage or imported from China. This is a purpose built product designed and engineered by an American company with over 20 years of racing and manufacturing experience.


Product Highlights:

- Up to 80% smaller than the stock battery
- Up to 10lbs Lighter than the stock battery
- Service Life of over 2000 cycles
- EVO 2 Batteries use hard mounted brass terminals for a direct replacement installation
- Completely “Dry” technology so batteries can be mounted on their side or even upside-down.
- Completely non-toxic, recyclable, and can be air shipped
- Applications for bikes from 50cc - 1800cc
- Tested extensively by professional race teams
- Impact and water resistant
- 90 day free replacement warranty
- No special charger required.
- No trickle charger required, loses only 10% of charge over a year of static use.















If you have any questions please let me know!

Hey, Chip :
Good to know we have a knowledgeable expert here in the S.E. I think we could all benefit from understanding using a litium battery on the street & mountains. The latest posts on YouTube of lithium batteries being subject to explosion has some of us worried. I would love to get one fron a knowledgeable U.S. dealer, but I fear saving 10 lbs. could lead to a destructive explosion/fire.
Can you make us smarter about the product?

Lithium Ion (Cell phones and Lap Tops) has a problem with over charging and catching fire. Lithium Farrous Phosphate (LiFePO4) which is what this battery is constructed of is much more stable.

That being said.....there are 12 billion lap tops and phones out there and they don't burst into flames often...

welcome to the forum little buddy... I will call you in the morning for a couple 12cells.

guys, chip and kevin from kws are a great bunch of guys. They don't sugar coat things and know what it takes to make any brand motorcycle perform. Even though this is a thread about batteries kws has invested alot into the development of the s1000rr. If your after a bit more power these are the guys to call..

Woohoo welcome Ballistic!!! Glad to see u guys here! Quick question, I'm looking for long data cable and long + and - cable so I could route them out of the back for easier access to charge my 12 cell, but so far couldn't find any... So my question is do you guys make them (longer cables) at all? Anf if you do where can I buy them and how much they may cost...

Thank you in advance...
