Battery warranty

Hello all.

I'm a owner of a 2014 Ducati 1199.
I store my bike inside my home and start it regularly. Two weeks ago the bike randomly stopped starting. I hooked it up to this Ducati Performance charger I got with te bike I have for a couple days. It shows yellow and red light for a few hours then sometimes turns solid green blinks green or only the red light shows.
I hit the start button and it tries to start but just won't turn over. The emission canister was removed by the previous owner. I called the dealer and they said it sounds like a dead battery but there is no battery warranty after one year. I tried looking online but don't see anything about the warranty being one year. I was told two years.

Any of you know what's the case for battery warranty?

i dont know of any battery warranty, maybe a cell just went bad in the cooler weather you are having. Plus side, new parts, ie a new lighter battery with better cranking.

I updated my battery to a shorai and i couldn't be happier. My stock battery didnt seem to have the cranking power that the shorai has and it starts much easier.

Btw starting a bike and letting it run at idle every few weeks doesn't help keep the battery charged.. a bikes generator needs to run at atleast 2000rpms generally for a reasonable time frame (eg few minutes or miles) to actually charge..
If bike is being stored just put it on the appropriate tender and call it a day..

Battery's may have warranty but that's most likely through the factory not ducati..
Thanks from youngR

You just need to ride it more often to keep the battery charged

I know no one reads their warranty booklet that comes with the bike, but here's what it says regarding batteries:

"The battery will be covered for the duration of twelve (12) months from initial retail purchase.
This Limited Warranty is void if failure of the battery has resulted due to lack of maintenance. Ducati North America, undertakes, in
its sole discretion, to replace the battery at its own cost and without charge to the purchaser if sufficiently maintained with an
appropriate charger while the motorcycle is not in regular use (see specific instruction in Ducati Owner's Manual).
Batteries that exhibit signs of neglect (sulfated) or overcharging (mossing, shedding or buckled-positive plates) are excluded from the
terms of this warranty."

And as stated previously, please don't "start" your bike periodically while it's being stored. That not only won't charge your battery in any meaningful way, it will also load up your very expensive spark plugs and the bike may become increasingly difficult to start. Either ride it or leave it stored with the battery on a tender. A Ducati Superbike is like a Samurai Sword, it should never come out of it's sheath unless it intends to draw blood!

well someone needed to say it, might as well be me
When he said "started it" like that was some sort of preventative measure
