Well, heres what motomummy had to say.

"The Shorai batteries are currently on backorder until the middle of April. Shorai drastically under estimated demand for this product, and they are currently working on producing more. If you have any questions about this product please let us know. At this time we are not taking new orders on this product. Once we have more inventory we'll re-activate the drop down box with the battery models."

Looks like everyone is sold out. i ended up buying a stock battery for 78 bucks for my Aprilia. im going to wait and find a Shorai for the RC51. Will let you guys know if i find them available anywhere.

I would suggest buying the 18Ah model for the street.
They recommend that model if you have frequent engine starts, or for cooler weather.
Still it weighs only 2.2 lbs (~1Kg), which is 7 lbs lighter than stock.

The weight savings are pretty rediculous....I know there are a lot of chemical companies in the Fukushima Prefecture. Many companies are scrambling to find raw materials to keep businesses moving

I am curious as to how this plays out for the availability.
