Motul and Amsoil synthetics are both neck and neck equal to eachother IMO. But I always go with Amsoil. If that's not in stock then i'll happily pick up Motul. That's all that has gone into all my bikes since about 2003. MX bikes, 50's and street bikes. I rank them as the best oils out there and swear by them.

I thought the same since most sportbike are 600cc with high reving engine I would think that the oil couldn't hold up that well since it gets double used to lube the engine components plus sever as transmission fluid I'd rather stick with castrol 4t racing for my 636 cheap insurance

It's the preferred oil of hi-po turbo 4 cyl (wrx, gti ms3) it cools the turbo w the oil as well, that's crazy high revs

It resist shearing very well

The main reason Rotella lovers swear by it is the zinc. Zinc is supposed to keep flat tappet valve trains from wearing and was eliminated from modern oils to meet emission standards.

Rotella T6 has a pretty high NOACK volatility percentage (12.8). Even SuperTech is lower.

I believe it's 15%. Still way up there. SuperTech is 11.3%. I've been running the T6 in my 4Runner with no issues and minor loss loss between changes, but I'll be switching to Mobil 1 EP (NOACK of 9.2%) on the next change.
