Best synthetic oil for people living in hot cities
25 August 2018
Motul is a reputed brand and it lives up to it's name. Don't go for cheaper synthetic oil available in the market. In the long run it would cost you more as it can damage your engine.
I've been using this oil on my Duke 200 from March - October months of the year and I am pretty amazed by the results. The engine and gear shifting feels butter smooth. It can easily last for 4K kms.
A bit of background:
It's not that the 20W50 is better than 10W40. These numbers are defined by Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). W stands for Winter. The number before W (20 in this case) is the thickness of the oil when tested at it’s lowest operating temperature and the number after W (50 in this case) is the oil’s thickness at higher operating temperatures or when the engine has been run for a while and warmed up.
Therefore 20W50 is best during summer season and during winter season 10W40 is OK to use. I use Shell Fully Synthetic 10W40 from Nov - Feb months of the year.
If you live in city which has winter all throughout the year then don't bother to use this one. It is only suitable for hot climate cities.
