Group 4 and 3+ are the most advanced baseoils. Additive packages determine the overall performance of the oil for the given application. Get a base 4 with correct spec for motorcycles with wet clutches and you are good to go. And peace of mind is guaranteed. Performance increase due to lighter wallet as bonus
BMW does not release the type of baseoil they use. It is a safe bet that they will sell you something that meets specs at the highest price point possible.
