Petronas Lubricants International (PLI) today launched PETRONAS Sprinta with UltraFlex(TM), its new range of motorcycle lubricants for customers in Thailand, in conjunction with the Phuket Bike Week 2018, here.

Formulated to resist engine stress and promote a longer bike life, the flagship motorcycle lubricants which was launched in March last year, addresses the core requirements of motorcycle riders who want reliable and better quality rides.

"Motorcycle is an important vehicle, either for leisure or as a primary mode of transport for a large number of people in Thailand. Regardless its purpose, extensive usage and exposure to heavy traffic put a lot of stress on the engine," said PLI Managing Director and Group Chief Executive Officer, Giuseppe D'Arrigo, who addressed the bikers at Phuket Bike Week.

Bike stress is often caused by high shear conditions that results from severe mechanical strain and high temperature inside the engine. These conditions lead to rattling and sluggish performance.

Combining PLI's century-long expertise in lubricant technology and consumer-focused innovation, PETRONAS Sprinta with UltraFlex(TM) is formulated with strong oil film that enhances oil stability to tackle the effects of bike stress and provide better riding experience and longer bike life.

Tests conducted using global industry standards show that PETRONAS Sprinta with UltraFlex(TM) has the ability to provide a superior oil film strength that is up to 41% higher than the industry benchmark1. 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 offers exceptional deposit control, thus maintaining bike power and ride quality.

D'Arrigo added, "The launch of PETRONAS Sprinta with UltraFlex(TM) today marks PLI's commitment in the Asia-Pacific market, especially in Thailand. It is a milestone for PLI on the back of its aspiration to be among the world's top 5 lubricants players by 2019. Our growth ambition is built on technology as a fundamental differentiator to continuously deliver superior products and services to meet consumer needs, while preparing ourselves to capture rising market opportunities."

PLI's participation at the Phuket Bike Week 2018, included a convoy of 30 riders from Kuala Lumpur comprising the media and superbike enthusiasts, as well as on-ground activities for the festival's visitors at the PETRONAS Sprinta with UltraFlex(TM) booth.
