There are a number of motorcycle engine oil types, and making the right choice matters.
Like it says on the ads: It’s more than just oil. It’s liquid engineering. That’s because while oil is an amazing natural resource, it’s the way we refine, re-engineer and even synthesize oil that makes every Castrol oil an essential addition to your motorcycle.
Customized to meet the needs of your engine – and your riding style – Castrol motorcycle oils fall into three broad categories: mineral, part synthetic and full synthetic. They also feature a wide range of different properties, formulations and viscosities to ensure that you always have the right type and grade of oil for your motorcycle, as recommended by the manufacturer.
Castrol® is the global leader in motorcycle lubricants technology and has taken performance testing to new limits at our state-of-the-art research and development facility in Pangbourne, UK. Whether you ride a modern street racer, v-twin cruiser, vintage café racer or prefer an off-road adventure bike, Castrol has an oil to suit your bike and riding style.
2-cycle engine oil, also known as 2-stroke engine oil, is an essential lubricant for every two-stroke engine. Yet not all two-cycle engine oils are created equal. Castrol's two-stroke engine oil is liquid engineered with additives that not only help to reduce exhaust smoke, but also control the build-up of harmful engine deposits.
Some people think that a 4-stroke car engine works just as hard as a 4-stroke motorcycle engine. The fact is that Motorcycle engines create higher pressures and more power per cc than car engines. This means that 4-stroke cycle engine oil has to work harder to provide the performance and the engine protection that motorcycle manufacturers demand.
