Motorcycle engines operate in a compact, high stress & high heat environment, and need a dedicated motorcycle oil to lubricate and protect the engines, gear box and clutch, all within a relatively small oil sump. The engine oil stress factor in a motorcycle can be three times that of a car.
That is why Shell developed our patented Shell PurePlus Technology that converts pure natural gas into the first-of-its-kind, high quality full synthetic base oil used in Shell Advance Ultra—our range of top-tier motorcycle oil.
The base oil produced from Shell’s unique and revolutionary gas-to-liquid process, is crystal clear, with virtually none of the impurities found in crude oil, in the starting point for most conventional and synthetic motorcycle oils. This pure and clear base oil, combined with a motorcycle-specific additive pack with unique Active Cleansing technology, helps to cleanse and keep the engine cleaner. A clean motorcycle engine helps provide better engine efficiency, performance and protection. Bikers enjoy power retention, fuel economy and oil durability benefits with the use of Shell Advance motorcycle oils
