Is there a newer battery technology, or more powerful battery, available for my ride?

In most cases the answer is yes. Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) is one of the more recent advancements in battery technology and usually provides more cranking power than its conventional counterpart. AGM technology uses a tear resistant glass mat separator to hold the electrolyte (acid) in place eliminating spills or leaks.

AGM batteries are often mistaken for gel batteries. Although there are similarities, there are a few distinct differences between the two technologies. AGM batteries have fewer charging restrictions, a much lower discharge rate during extended periods of non use and usually higher cranking power than gel batteries.
