Just read this on the other forum across the pond, but it originates from Manchester.

Anybody had a similar experience. Got back from a ride out. Bike running ok. Went to move the bike (1100 sport with hektik ignition) and suddenly there was plumes of smoke bellowing from the bike - and I mean A LOT of smoke. The lithium battery it turns out had literally imploded. No evidence of burning to battery terminals or elsewhere on the bike, The centre of the battery had shrunk to a distorted mess.
Anybody...any ideas why?? charging issues?? or is it "typical" ion battery "failure",
I am somewhat worried...if it had done it 10 minutes earlier I was doing 70mph and the end result could have been very different!!! What do you guys think???

He clearly hasn't seen the pictures of the burning Teslas.

Better 5 minutes late in this world than years early in the next.
