Recently, ExxonMobil Lubricants also launched Mobil Super Moto Synthetic Technology 15W-50 engine oil, designed specifically to cater to the needs of four-stroke motorcycle engines. This advanced engine oil promises to offer 57% better protection against wear (based on Industry Standard Engine test sequence IVA in API SL) for prolonged engine life. The additives present in the oil help in keeping the engine protected from any deposit formation in the hot spots, thereby ensuring cleaner running engine for a longer time. The oil is formulated to further optimise the performance of the engine by offering better low- and high-temperature viscosity performance at different temperature extremes. These features are especially relevant to India’s climate, with different parts of the country experiencing widely diverse weather conditions
