Kuala Lumpur, 10 April 2018 – PETRONAS today flagged off the PETRONAS Sprinta with UltraFlex™ Experience to Believe, a convoy of high-powered motorcycles for a 1,000km journey to the Phuket Bike Week 2018 in Thailand, the biggest bike in Asia.
The flag off at PETRONAS Technology Park Malaysian station in Sungai Besi saw some 30 journalists, key opinion leaders and bike enthusiast getting a first-hand experience of the superior riding performance that comes with PETRONAS Sprinta with UltraFlex™ lubricant and the efficiency offered by PETRONAS Primax 97 fuel.
“PETRONAS has been providing total fluid solutions to riders in Malaysia at all its stations. The convoy today signifies our commitment to invest and expand the PETRONAS brand presence in Thailand’s vibrant motorcycle market, introducing PETRONAS Sprinta with UltraFlex™ to riders from all over Asia,” said PETRONAS’ Vice President of Downstream Marketing, Dato’ Sri Syed Zainal Abidin Syed Mohd Tahir.

PETRONAS Sprinta with UltraFlex™ motorcycle lubricant, which promises a smooth and quality riding experience, was developed at the newly launched PETRONAS’ Global Research and Technology Centre in Turin, Italy, home of PETRONAS Fluid Technology Solutions™.
Since making its re-entry into the Malaysian market in March last year, PETRONAS Sprinta with UltraFlex™ has received positive response from trade and end-consumers alike, with 50 per cent higher sales volume recorded in 2017 compared to 2016.
Zainal Abidin added that all bikes in the convoy were filled with PETRONAS Sprinta with UltraFlex™ F900 and PETRONAS Primax fuel, which will deliver maximum riding benefits and give the participants a feel of PETRONAS’ winning fluid technology – the same technology that powered the Mercedes AMG PETRONAS Formula One team to four consecutive F1 World Constructors’ Championship since 2014.
