3kg weight saving, right where you most want it on the bike.
The new battery is exactly the same size as the original, in fact it’s the same make.

It’s so light that l wasn’t convinced there was anything inside it.

But it works fine.

That’s the battery l bought

I did mention it to the insurance but they said it was “not on the list” so apparently OK

I went to the bathroom before I made a 400miles round trip through the Catskills in NY area. Saved approximately the same amount of weight...

I do think 3 kg gain as lightning stated, is somewhat too optimistic but then I do not recall the weight of the OEM battery (Yuasa in my case).
On my first gen 390 Duke I opted for a W-Standard 12Vh (OEM = 9Vh) as the size is the same.
I needed more space for my PowerTRONIC box as the rest of the under seat space is taken up by my KTM alarm/immobiliser.
This W-Standard weighs 0.72 kg.
03-W-STANDARD Motorcycle lithium battery WEX2L12-MF Start the power supply 12Ah - WEX2 12Ah - LITHIUM BATTERIES

There are plenty of other brands to pick from though.
