Shell Malaysia today launched a new range of motorcycle lubricants dubbed the Shell Advance 4T, which features a four-product line up to cater for a wide range of applications. A key element of Shell’s formulation for this new range of engine oils is R.C.E. technology, which stands for Reliability of oil performance, Control via smoother gear shifts, and Enjoyment of a low vibration ride.
“At Shell we put our customers at the heart of everything we do and listen to what their needs are. In the area of motorcycle oils, we want to offer Shell Advance as the best oil a biker can get. With the new Shell Advance 4T, we are not only setting new standards in terms of engine protection and performance but are also making the products more user-friendly with the benefits more tangible to
consumers,” said En Azman Ismail, Managing Director of Shell Malaysia Trading Sdn Bhd and Shell Timur Sdn Bhd.
Encik Azman added, “We believe that discerning motorcyclists will not only be able to feel but also actually hear the difference with the new Shell Advance 4T range of motorcycle oils. Hence, the decision to anchor our entire marketing campaign on the promise of ‘responsiveness you can hear.”
To aid users in differentiating between the four products of the line-up, Shell supplies the 4T oils in colour-coded cans with icons to clearly state the designed application of the respective oils.
