Sounds like a bad case of B.S to me !
10/40 is what most people use, moterex did deal with ktm 2005 and recommend 10/50 after years of testing on the SOHC.
Suddenly 10/60 is the best , why? I bet it costs more as well.
I would ring back for a proper answer, what you paying for those small bottles. £10-12 a litre? From £7-00 18 months ago.
If the10/60 is so damn good, tell them to stick the 10/50 and youll buy the 4litre containers at a discount while you test it out for them.

Motorex is all marketing...they paid $$$ for the right to have KTM pimp their product, and it shows. "Special" oil weights, dire warnings in the manual not to use anything else, etc. Whatever.

I don't mind spending a premium for the best products, but my opinion when it comes to Motorex is that you are spending a premium for the best marketing. LOTS of other good oils, lubes, etc out there that are equal or better than Motorex for less money.

i reckon go with it, their oils are pretty good and 10 60 is an even higher spec than the 10/50. i would always worry more about the first number than the last number anyway.

No, thats not a bad price mate especially if you got the 10/60.
The 10/50 lists at £40 for 4liter round here, i can usually get a couple of quid off.

Did you get the power synt4 or the cross power?

Just to confuse things a bit more, my ktm manual said power synt 4 , but they recommend cross power for the new Bergs.

Whats the difference? Anyone know?
