MUMBAI — March 30, 2017: Petronas Lubricants International (PLI) today launched its Petronas Sprinta with UltraFlex, its flagship range of motorcycle lubricants formulated to resist engine stress and promote a longer bike life.
This range addresses the core requirements of motorcycle riders who want reliable and better quality rides.
Managing Director/Group Chief Executive Officer of PLI, Giuseppe D’Arrigo, said that for a majority of bike owners, motorcycle is the primary mode of transport for their daily commutes, usually under heavy traffic conditions.
This potentially leads to extensive usage and heavy load on the motorcycle, putting a lot of stress on the engine.
Bike stress is often caused by high shear conditions that results from severe mechanical stress and high temperature inside the engine. These conditions lead to rattling noise and sluggish performance.
“Combining our century-long expertise in lubricant technology and consumer-focused innovation, Petronas Sprinta with UltraFlex technology is formulated with strong oil film that enhance oil stability to address the diverging effects of bike stress.
“Ultimately, our aim is to address the very issues that motorcycle owners face to provide better riding experience and longer bike life,” said D’Arrigo.
Tests conducted using global industry standards show that the lubricant is able to provide superior oil film strength that is up to 41 per cent higher than the industry benchmark .
This alone helps the engine to endure the effects of load, speed and engine stress without breaking down, while
allowing the bike to respond better. The new range of lubricants also offer exceptional deposit control, thus maintaining bike power and ride quality.
According to D’Arrigo, the company’s growth ambition is built on technology as a fundamental differentiator to continuously deliver superior products and services to meet consumer needs, while preparing itself to capture rising market opportunities.
Another aspiration of PLI is to be among the world’s top 5 lubricant players by 2019.
The new lubricant will be available globally in phases from today. — Bernama
