Amerigo, I have no idea why you posted this question in Wrider's blog, as he hasn't been active on this forum in about 4 years. But the answer to your question is, "it depends". Here's an excellent article on Revilla's website that will give you more info about motorcycle engines and octane ratings in gasoline: https://www.revzilla.com/common-tread/w ... ane-rating
2003 Triumph Trophy 1200
2009 BMW F650GS (wife's)
2012 Triumph Tiger 800
2018 Yamaha XT250 (wife's)
2013 Kawasaki KLX250S
