Honda has teamed up with JX Nippon TWO Lubricants India to launch the ENEOS Honda range of engine oils. The newly launched range of lubricants are mineral based, and are available for both Honda motorcycles and scooters, ranging from the Activa to the Hornet CB 160R. For bikes, the oil is available in 10W30 MA grade, whereas the scooter oil is graded as 10W30 MB. In October last year, Honda had launched another range of lubricants for its two-wheelers in association with Bharat Petroleum’s MAK Lubricants.
Compared to the MAK co-branded lubricants, the new ENEOS Honda engine oil is priced at a bit of a premium, despite being the same grade. Called “Bikerz Oil”, it is costs Rs 272 for an 800ml pack and Rs 341 for a 1-litre pack - both for bikes. Usually, motorcycle oils are available in 1-litre packs and small-capacity engines do not require that much. An 800ml pack should come in handy in such cases.
The lubricant for scooters, called “Scooterz Oil” is priced at Rs 286 for an 800ml pack. The newly launched range will help Honda gain a better foothold in the lubricant market. Here’s HMSI’s official release regarding the launch:
