Total offers a range of excellent motorcycle lubricants suitable for 2 and 4-stroke engines through our ELF MOTO 4 and MOTO 2 brands. From modern, high-performance racing and leisure bikes through to road bikes used day-to-day, our ELF Moto engine oils offer engine protection for all motorcyclists, and because they’re produced with Total’s latest synthetic oil technologies, they guarantee clean running and maximum power, whatever the oil grade.
The range has been developed and put through its paces alongside the Kawasaki Racing Team WSBK and the MotoGP Marc VDS Racing teams, ensuring exceptional performance on road and track.
Both two and four-stroke oils have exceptional oxidation resistance at high temperatures, prevent the formation of deposits, contain additives to thicken oil at high temperatures and maintain their fluidity at low temperatures. This helps them protect components from wear, even in high-speed, high-pressure or high-load situations.

The ultimate guide to motorcycle oil
If you ride, it’s important you understand your motorcycle oil – it’s key to keeping your bike well-protected and functioning impeccably and can safeguard your engine and parts from expensive maintenance further down the line.
In our ultimate guide to motorcycle oil, we provide answers on a wide range of topics, including the difference between motorcycle oil and car oil, whether you can use car oil in a motorbike, how to flush engine oil from a motorcycle, whether you should choose motorcycle chain oil or wax, and the benefits of using synthetic oil in your bike.
How to perform a motorbike oil change
Motorbike oil can become less effective over time as it picks up deposits, oxidises, becomes less viscous and loses its performance-enhancing additives. At this point, it needs changing.
If you want to perform your own motorbike oil change, our guide provides step-by-step instructions on how to do so safely and effectively. On top of that, it also features information on how often you should change your oil and the symptoms to recognise if your bike is low on oil.
How ELF MOTO and Brough Superior make the perfect motorbike partnership
In biking, no name carries as much historical weight as Brough Superior. The preferred motorcycle manufacturer of the likes of Lawrence of Arabia, Brough’s bikes represented the height of two-wheeled technology between 1919 and 1940 when, sadly, the workshop closed its doors.
Until 2008 that is, when the company leapt into action producing a brand-new generation of Brough Superior motorcycles. Total have been tremendously lucky to be a part of this storied revival, producing a range of superior vintage motorcycle oils under the Brough name.
