Shell Lubricants yesterday launched two new products; Shell Advance VSX4 and Shell Advance SX4 10w 30 motorcycle engine oils in India. These have been uniquely formulated to keep the engine clean, giving better responsiveness straight out of the bottle, thus facilitating enhanced efficiency and fuel economy of motorcycles.

Shell Advance VSX4 is specially designed for riders of high-powered bikes who need superior oil to protect and keep bike engine clean in all types of road conditions. On the other hand, Shell Advance SX4 10w 30 is suitable for modern, touring, classic and seasoned bikes and for bikers who depend on their bikes for everyday use.

According to Mr. Donald Anderson, Country Head – Lubricants, Shell India Markets Pvt. Ltd., “Two- wheeler sales in the country have surged in recent years and the annual sales of motorcycles in India is expected to cross the 10 million mark by 2010. The share of motorcycles has increased over other two-wheelers in the last few years. We are endeavoring to bring the latest global technologies in the lubricant industry to this segment of discerning customers who value powerful performance and fuel efficiency.”

“Motorcycle engines are almost twice as powerful as those in sports cars, liter for liter. That’s why a consumer needs oil that is different from car oils and that is dedicated to bikes to provide the best wear protection. Our successful technical partnership with Ducati Corse helps us test our engine oils in extreme conditions of the race track.
