From road racing to motocross, sidecar to Dakar, the world’s greatest riders put their faith in Motul to not just get them to the finish line – but win, too. This is what some of the Motul-backed two-wheeled stars had to say about why Motul is the winning formula for them. 

Monster Energy Honda HRC rider and rally winner Adrien Van Beveren
“I’ve been using Motul for a long time. The quality is great. Personally, Motul’s products are clearly the best you can get, not just the oils but all the products around the bike. I even use the Motul glass window cleaner for my goggles. They have everything you need. It’s nice to be surrounded by this kind of team and to have good products to work with. Having this makes our job easier and it means the bikes are more durable for these kinds of races.”

Independent motorcycle privateer and championship winner Jim McConville 
“Bike engine builders and various mechanics I've spoken to say they prefer Motul 300V. It just seems to maintain the motor better, keeps it in better condition, and prevents disaster more often than some of the other brands. It just seems to be formulated to handle what we're doing much better than the competition. What's also convenient is that Motul tends to be trackside, and all the vendors stock Motul products as well. So, it's clearly a popular choice and easily accessible.”

Sherco’s enduro world champion Emma Bristow
“I've been using Motul for two years now and I wouldn't use anything else. Motul is a really trusted brand that's been tested and tested and tested. Like with the two strokes, because the oil is so high quality, we can use a little bit less and it keeps the bikes revving clean. You’ve also got the maintenance products, such as the chain lube and grease. I regrease my linkage every time I go riding. It’s nice to have a full range of products that do everything you need.”

Team HRC rider and MXGP champ Tim Gajser
Team HRC and I have worked alongside Motul for a few years now and we really enjoy our relationship. They are always providing the best products for our bikes and if we have requests or need anything, they are always available for discussions and are open to trying things. Obviously, the bike is massively important, so I need to be able to trust whatever goes on it or in it, and I fully trust Motul to get my Honda CRF450R running perfectly.”

Peter Hickman – the world’s fastest road racer
“Having the right lubrication, from the engine to the chain and the gearbox, is one of the most important things on a motorcycle. It’s an accumulation of everything. Motul’s products are second to none in the market. They are the market leaders. The lubricants that they come up with and how that affects the engine is always positive. And obviously we need our engines to perform at the absolute maximum. So, to get the most out of them, you need to also have a very high-quality oil and people that know what they're doing. And Motul is obviously that company.”

Ben & Tom Birchall – the TT-winning sidecar duo
“Motul is a great connection to have, especially with our relationship with Honda. We’ve been with Motul for five years now, and we were using Motul even before we had the partnership because it’s the only product that works for us. What the sidecar engines go through at the TT is just incredible and its testament to that that keeps you going. The product, in general, is just perfect for everything we need.”
