There are several motorcycle engine oil types and making the right choice matters
Like you will have seen elsewhere on our website: 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 synthesise oil that makes every Castrol oil an essential addition to your motorcycle.
Customised 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.
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.
