Similar to its groundbreaking introduction of Helix engine oils that focus more on the benefits to users and less on technical specifications, Shell has extended this strategy to its Shell Advance range of motorcycle engine oils. The new engine oils, Shell Advance Power and Shell Advance Long Ride, aim to make it easier for motorbike owners to choose the right lubricant based on their needs and riding styles.
These engine oils are specially designed for 4-stroke motorcycles. Incidentally, these are also the most affordable, premium-branded fully synthetic motorcycle engine oils in the Malaysian market.
Shell Advance Power (retail price: RM55 per 1-litre pack) is specially formulated for bikers who enjoy power and acceleration. It is engineered to maximise your bike’s performance as well as to preserve the bike’s highest power output by resisting the onset of oxidation and formation of deposits. As a result, bikes lubricated with Shell Advance Power demonstrate no power loss even after 20,000 km.
Meanwhile, Shell Advance Long Ride (RM50 per 1-litre pack) caters to bikers who want peace of mind by having trouble-free engines. This oil is suitable for both city rides or long-distance travels. Its robust, low evaporation formulation is developed for maximum heat endurance and reduced oil consumption for rides of up to 6,000 km.
Both lubricant products feature Shell’s proprietary PurePlus Technology, a 99.5% pure base oil made from natural gas. Further, they had demonstrated better cold start and high temperature performance and piston cleanliness compared to ester-based engine oils.
“At Shell, we have always been at the forefront of lubricant technology innovation. With the new Shell Advance Power and Shell Advance Long Ride, we want bike owners to be empowered to choose the right lubricant by simplifying the two options based on their needs,” said Nyon Kam Yew, Shell Lubricants General Manager for Malaysia and Singapore.
