Ducati Lubricants
Powered by Shell Advance

The partnership between Ducati and Shell began in 1999, during the Superbike World Championship.
Together they have won seven world titles in MotoGP and one Superbike World Championship, amassing over 150 race wins.
Since then, Ducati has been using Shell oil for each of its bikes.

Ducati Corse Performance Oil

The new Ducati Corse Performance Oil Powered by Shell Advance was developed using the exceptional collaboration between Shell formulation specialists and Ducati engine developers to specifically meet the requirements of the Ducati Panigale V4R and Streetfighter V4 with dry clutch.

Through Shell's technical collaboration with Ducati in MotoGP and World Superbike, where Shell products have been tested in the most challenging and competitive circumstances over the past 23 years, Ducati's customers benefit from the advances created.

This technical partnership between Shell and Ducati Corse has seen great successes on the track, including the campaign that saw Ducati win the Constructors' Championship and the MotoGP 2022 Riders' title.

From the racetrack to the road use

For the first time, customers can now experience an engine oil created specifically for Ducati V4 engines with a dry clutch and enjoy a power advantage of up to 3.5 hp.
