It's a [censored] oil. It has good amounts of boron, moly and zinc.

I wonder how it retains its viscosity. With those levels of boron, zinc and phosphorous, and a healthy shot of moly, but not too much, if it retains viscosity well it'd be great for a shared sump bike.

They use Oronite's PI package with a good dose of potassium borate.
