PETRONAS INTRODUCES NEW RANGE OF PETRONAS SPRINTA WITH ULTRAFLEX™ – RM 15-RM 67

PETRONAS Lubricants Marketing Malaysia (“PLMM”) together with with PETRONAS Lubricant International (“PLI”) today hosted a media preview of a new range of its flagship motorcycle oils, PETRONAS Sprinta with UltraFlex™. Designed to react instantaneously to changing road and riding conditions, the lubricant’s new technology protects the bike’s critical areas and provide exceptional engine performance and longer bike life.

With growing traffic congestion and unpredictable road conditions, riders are always on alert to avoid untoward consequences.

Its unique formulation responds instantly and flexibly to the multitude demands of the bike’s critical parts – the engine, clutch and gears. Even at high RPM, the lubricant maintains its film pressures. This allows riders to experience instant response to rapid acceleration, enjoying the exhilaration of leaning into road bends and corners.

Thew new range of oil is also designed to meet the latest and most stringent global environmental standards to take effect in 2020, such as the Euro 5 and Bharat Stage (BS) VI requirements.

The new PETRONAS Sprinta with UltraFlex™ is priced between RM 15 to RM 67 per bottle in West Malaysia and in East Malaysia, all the products range would be priced RM 1 more than in West Malaysia. The new engine oil will be available at PETRONAS Mesra stores and PETRONAS Partner Workshops from mid-November onwards.

It will also be introduced globally in phases beginning with India and Thailand in first quarter 2020, followed by Indonesia, Vietnam and other countries thereafter.

Kawasaki Bakal Lancar Model H2 Naked?

Baru-baru ini, Kawasaki Motors telah memuat naik satu video pendek di saluran YouTube mereka. Video bertajuk Supercrharged: Feel The Force tersebut yang berdurasi 11 saat hanya mengandungi pergerakan kipas turbin dan diikuti dengan logo “Z” yang digunakan pada model naked Kawasaki.

Apa yang kami boleh simpulkan daripada video pendek ini, Kawasaki bakal melancarkan model “Z” baru yang akan dilengkapi sistem supercharger, berkemungkinan besar didasarkan daripada Kawasaki Ninja H2 yang dilancarkan pada tahun 2014.

Konsep SC-02 “Soul Charger”

Rekabentuk model ini masih belum diketahui, namun ada peluang ia akan menyerupai model konsep SC-02 “Soul Charger” yang ditontonkan di EICMA 2015. Jika betul, model “Z2” ini bakal menjadi salah satu motosikal naked paling berkuasa di dalam pasaran setakat ini.

Sama-sama kit nantikan pelancarannya sama ada di Tokyo Motorcycle Show ataupun EICMA Milan tahun ini.
