Motul Partners with Vance & Hines in Numerous Racing Series

Motul’s oils and lubricants will be used by Vance & Hines in King of the Baggers, Twins Cup, and NHRA.

Motul’s partnership with Vance & Hines will see Motul Performance Lubricants used across all their programs in King of the Baggers, Twins Cup, and NHRA. Motul is the Official Lubricant of MotoAmerica’s King of the Baggers and is excited to continue supporting strong teams in the series such as Vance & Hines to test and prove its Motul Twin Line of engine oils.

“We thought the relationship with Vance & Hines was a great opportunity to connect a proven performance product with a winning team that pushes the limits,” said Amber Bates, general manager at Motul USA. “In addition, we believe this partnership will further legitimize Motul oil and lubricants in the V-Twin space, which is a key target market for us in 2024 and beyond.”

In NHRA, Motul upholds a long history of supporting Suzuki teams in the U.S., and is proud to go racing again with the brand this season. Gaige Herrera, the defending NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle Champion, will represent the ZLA orange livery on the RevZilla/Motul/Vance & Hines Suzuki prominently featuring Motul’s partnership. This collaboration holds significance as RevZilla serves as an important retail partner for the entire range of Motul oil and cleaners.

Meanwhile, Richard Gadson embarks on his inaugural NHRA Pro Stock season, bringing a wealth of championship experience from other series. Gadson is not only a competitor but also a student of the sport, hailing from a family of motorcycle racers. With five National Championships himself in various series and categories, Gadson has earned a reputation as one of the most versatile riders in the sport.

Transitioning to road racing, Hayden Gillim secured the King of the Baggers title last year, concluding the season with eight consecutive podium finishes.

Rocco Landers, the youngest member of the lineup at 19, has already amassed three MotoAmerica championships and holds a position in the top 10 on the all-time AMA road racing wins list across all classes. 

Celebrating 170 years as a company in 2023, Motul’s motor oils and lubricants will continual to develop alongside of all the riders in the Vance & Hines lineup.
