Why Motul? Motul have worked with Honda since the early 80's and is still a big lubricant name in Japan, regarding performance engines.
Historically, Motul has regularly stood out from its competitors by its high-tech solutions: as early as 1971, it was the first lubricant producer to sell 100% synthetic oil on the automotive market.
By developing the Ester technology in the 300V Motorsport line, Motul more recently developed a technology placing it above all existing market standards.
The Group owes its innovation capacity to its teams organised in a network in its Centre of Excellence Product, and also to the work conducted in partnership with universities and consultants and to its alliances with specialised players in advanced technological fields.
A specialist in the design and manufacture of high-tech lubricants and a synthetic lubricant expert, Motul are heavily involved at the highest level of motorsport - the ideal testing ground for developing and perfecting products for the public market. Motul has always favoured innovation, research and development. The company is also leader of the motorcycle lubricants market in France. In the motorsports field, many manufacturers trust Motul for its technological developments in car/bike racing. Motul has thus developed close relationships with manufacturers such as Nissan, Yamaha, Subaru, Honda and Suzuki.
