I can't find any data regarding the Motorex KTM Racing 4T 20W/60 oil. The motorex website does not tell anything.
Does anyone have any info on what is in the oil?
It's a very expensive oil and naturally one wants to know if it's worth it.

Mostly PAO, some ZDDP, and calcium sulfonate according to the SDS. Other than that, I'd have to assume the regular assortment of ingredients for a a heavy PAO engine oil: anti-oxidants, additional detergents, some ester base fluid, and perhaps some additional anti-wear or extreme pressure additives since it for shared sump bikes.

Thank you but I still don't know if the $25 per quart is worth it or not.

That all depends on your riding conditions. If you are not subjecting your bike to extreme racing conditions, a full synthetic 20W-60 "race" oil probably won't provide you with much benefit over a less expensive alternative.

5 Qt jug of M1 15-50 at WM for $23-$26 and call it a day. If you dont like "Car Oil" then the M1 4T 20w-50 is only $10/qt. $25 a quart is robbery

That'd be quite the trip to get to a Walmart from Switzerland.

good oil but surely not @ $25 a qt, gotta be alternatives even if you need to get it shipped!!! BMW bike oils are similarly overpriced!!!
