AMA Pro Racing and Shorai at Atlanta

In Case you haven’t heard Shorai has a contingency plan in place for racers that are racing in the Vance & Hines XR1200 series. Contingency payouts will be provided to the top seven finishers for all 11 of the AMA / Vance & Hines XR1200 events. Shorai will provide awards to racers using our lithium motorcycle battery.  So, if you are racing why not get the weight savings of a Shorai lithium motorcycle battery, and a chance to get some extra money.  It’s a win-win situation.
