Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A. debuted a new line of powersport oils. The new Kawasaki performance Oils line includes full-synthetic, semi-synthetic and mineral-based formulations in multiple grades of motorcycle oils, plus new ATV/UTV and PWC formulations, announced the company.
The improvements include mineral-based formulations that Kawasaki says delivers a 20 percent reduction in phosphorous and sulfur content, 45 percent lower volatility, 5 percent higher film thickness, between 15-30 percent better anti-wear characteristics and up to a 15 percent improvement in anti-oxidancy, depending on type.
“These new oils cover gaps in the previous lineup and will help Kawasaki dealers to capitalize on the strong demand for modern synthetic oil formulations, while more effectively serving the needs of their powersports customers,” Jim Williams, KMC’s director of corporate sales, said in the release.
In conjunction with the launch of these new oils, Kawasaki is also releasing new packaging, “Performance Made Perfect” marketing and dealer displays all designed to emphasize the modern, high-performance attributes of Kawasaki Performance Oils.
