Husqvarna Motorcycles has entered into a strategic global partnership with MOTOREX. From January, 2018, all new Husqvarna models – both off-road and street – will be first filled with MOTOREX lubricants. In addition, the Swiss manufacturer will become the official partner of Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing.
Manufactured to the highest standards in Langenthal, Switzerland, MOTOREX products are well-known around the world for their superior quality and performance. Founded by pioneer Arnold Bucher in 1917, the BUCHER-MOTOREX Group is an independent family owned business that pride themselves on high-quality products and world class customer care. Offering a comprehensive range of lubricants, care and maintenance products, MOTOREX remain committed to providing top-quality products that enhance the performance and reliability of all motorcycles. With their in-house laboratory developing the next generation of lubricants and care products, MOTOREX’ engineers work hard to fulfill the brand’s promise for continuous innovation.
Entering this new partnership with the Swiss manufacturer, Husqvarna Motorcycles will exclusively use MOTOREX oils to first fill all models that roll off their production lines. In addition, for the servicing of all models, Husqvarna Motorcycles will further recommend MOTOREX lubricants and the wide variety of care and maintenance products from the comprehensive MOTOREX MOTOLINE.
Like Husqvarna, MOTOREX is well accustomed to motorsport success. With 110 world championship titles to their credit in motocross, supercross, enduro, rally and other disciplines, MOTOREX has a history of providing the very best lubricants to the best teams. Continuing to push the boundaries of oil performance, their products are race proven the world over. For Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing the signing of this agreement with MOTOREX further increases motivation ahead of a thrilling new season of international competition.
Pablo Quintanilla and Andrew Short begin the grueling 2018 Dakar Rally on January 6. During the same weekend their Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team partners Jason Anderson and Dean Wilson will begin their assault on the 2018 AMA Supercross Championship. In addition, Mitchell Harrison will also start his 250SX West Region Championship campaign.
Stefan Pierer, CEO of KTM AG, said: “With this strategic partnership with MOTOREX Husqvarna Motorcycles will continue their exciting and dynamic forward progression. Focused on pioneering development, it is of crucial importance to partner with a globally acclaimed lubricants manufacturer with whom we share many common objectives. This agreement with MOTOREX successfully fulfils our goals for strong strategic group partnerships in both our motorsports activities and production sector.

The new season starts with two hugely important events for us, the Dakar Rally and the first round of the AMA Supercross series. Aiming for the top step of the podium in both disciplines, we are very much looking forward to starting this new year with MOTOREX by our side.”
