Your motorbike…

…requires a great deal of attention and sufficient care, in a different way than a car does. That’s why RAVENOL offers an extensive product portfolio specifically for motorbikes and their particular requirements: from 4-T engine oils with the latest USVO technology to special multigrade transmission oils and spray oils, chain lubricants, carburettor cleaners through to care and cleaning products which are gentle on paintwork.

The high-performance engines of modern bikes often get twice the power out of the same cubic capacity compared with modern passenger car engines! Bikes can do this thanks to extremely high revolutions per minute! The higher the rpm, the higher the operating temperatures. This means that in certain areas of the engine, at full throttle, temperatures of up to 350°C may be reached.

The oxidation value, i.e. the ageing of the oil, increases with rising temperatures! Above a temperature of 60°C, the service life of the oil reduces by 50% with every additional temperature increase of 10°C! It’s not only the high operating temperatures, but also the extreme engine performance that make the engine oil have to work harder to protect the engine components from wear and sludge formation while simultaneously guaranteeing perfect transmission and clutch performance.

The RAVENOL Racing 4-T Motobike series with USVO technology exclusively uses Group 4&5 synthetic base oils, so-called polyalphaolefins (PAO) and esters which have far superior characteristics when compared with conventional base oils.

Compared with conventional oils, these base oils offer better low-temperature properties as well as significantly higher oxidation stability which becomes evident thanks to the extended oil-change intervals. Not only this, but these oils have greater shear stability, i.e. they retain their viscosity (flowability, or resistance to flow) better as they do not require the addition of viscosity improvers (polymers, plastics), which cause sludge formation in engines. The USVO technology also ensures that the oil film is extremely stable and has a very high pressure absorption capacity, which is reflected in its excellent wear protection properties and improved performance.

RAVENOL Racing 4-T Motobike products offer better engine protection due to reduced friction and sludge formation and longer oil-change intervals. They will ensure that your bike performs even better! You can find a detailed explanation of the respective technical test parameters that explain the unbeatable performance of the Racing 4-T Motobike series in this newsletter! The test results of the RAVENOL products and some well-known competitors are shown in the following table. The full presentation and all test results are available on request from your sales representative.
