Wouldn't mind if BMW charged 500$ more for the bike in exchange for a few upgraded items right from the get-go.

Is that a similar battery to the Shorai?
Yes, it's the same LiFe chemistry as the Shorai. The Shorai has less cold cranking amps (210 vs. 275) but looks to have more robust packaging (probably where the added weight comes from).
