939 Engine Oil

I will be changing the oil myself and looking into oils other than the Motul 300v 15w50 that the Ducati dealer uses.

I saw this Motul 5100 4T Synthetic Ester Blend Motor Oil is half the cost of that stuff they use.

What am I going to run into if I use the Ester Blend?

Here are the specs for the 5100 4T 15w-50

The viscosities are very close. The VI is a bit lower.

Of those only the bottom one is in the right viscosity range. The 300V.

I wouldn't touch the 5100 4T with the specs you just posted.

Is the 300V MA rated? Doesn't say.
