What is the Amp / Hour / drainage is the important one ....

You should read some websites
http://www.mcnews.com/mcnews/articles/battery.htm

Personally i don't see the point of buying a expensive battery ... If the Amp / hour is good then it will last a few years ....

Expensive battery = pictures of burning motorcycle seats are not nice right ?

I have a Motobatt in my XCT. It is rated at 280 cca. I accidentally left the ignition on for over an hour on Saturday, and she started right up.

I have one on my Harley as do many of my friends, everyone is 100% happy with them. When the battery on my XCT dies it will get one.
