Why Kenyan Nduthis need to be lubricated


Kenyan Motorbikes are probably some of the most overused bikes in the region.

Out of the 4.8 million motorcycles on Kenyan roads, about 600,000 are commercial motorcycles with each making, on average, Sh,000 a day. This translates to Sh600 million a day and Sh 219 billion annually.

Now, to contribute this kind of cash to the economy is no joke, as a sector you must be working hard, the motorbikes must have lost a smooth movement in the process due to increased friction. This makes most of them worn-out so quick, and always spending more time at the mechanics for repairs than on the roads .

To safeguard the life of the motorcycle engine, gearbox, clutch and bring optimum performance, the motorcycles can now enjoy the new Hi-Perf lubricant from Total Kenya that is affordable and efficient.

Due to the requirement for gearbox protection, the new oil contain phosphorous anti-wear additive to help minimize wear due to metal-to-metal contact.

“We are delighted to launch Hi-Perf lubricant into the market. This will supplement the existing Total Kenya lubricants as we strive to bring innovative solutions that cater for all your engine oil needs,” said Total Kenya Lubricant Sales Manager Oliver Biyogo.

Majority of the boda boda’s consume 12 litres of lubricant per annum per unit on average. Total enjoys a commanding market share for lubricants.

The new lubricant targets boda boda merchants, mechanics, dealers and riders across the country under the campaign slogan “Toka Teke Teke.”

This will make the bikes move more faster without technical challenges.

Total modern lubricants blending plant in Mombasa serves the Kenyan market and the entire Eastern Africa region. Total’s Test Diagnostics Lubricants Laboratory in Nairobi offers oil analysis services to the bulk customers for quality assurance.
