My Personal Experience with Motul Oil

I own a Honda Nc750x and stuck with the Honda Dealership for the duration of the 1-year factory warranty. I was never happy with my bike’s sound and performance whenever I collected from the dealer after servicing.

When the warranty expired, I decided to service my own bike and discovered Motul Oil, at my local motorcycle Auto Parts Supplier.

I was pleasantly surprised as my bike was running smoother, more power and less engine noise, my clutch even felt more responsive. This is how I learned about Motul Oil for my Honda Nc750x.

After trying various competing brands of Motorcycle Engine Oils, I came to respect and like Motul 10w40 oil in my Honda NC750X.

I recommend Motul Oil to all who desires extra protection and superior performance Motorcycle Engine Oil, I experienced the difference with Motul Oil.

In so many cases, the uninformed use the wrong spec engine oil thereby paying the price in costly repairs. So when in doubt, always consult your vehicle owner’s manual.
