Washing a motorcycle can be a real pain, but it bears riding a dirty bike. To keep my bike clean for longer, without taking up too much time and effort, I use a trio of Motul products. Part of Motul’s MC Care range, they’re called Moto Wash, Wash & Wax, and Shine & Go.

These three bottles are literally all I need to keep my bike smiling from the outside, and I’ve been using them as a combo to achieve a longer-lasting shine.

If you’d like to do the same, here’s how…

Start with Moto Wash—a powerful biodegradable degreaser for the entire motorcycle. Spray it onto the bike, let it soak for a few minutes, and then spray it off with some water. Make sure you spray it on thick enough—as I do on my engine covers to get rid of anti-freeze splatter and other debris. The degreaser really does work a treat, and once rinsed off with water it dries without streaking and leaves a corrosion-resistant film to protect the paint.

Once you’ve dried the bike off, give it a good old spray with Motul’s Wash & Wax. The best part is that you don’t need a bucket of water, so you can use Wash & Wax anywhere. All you need is two microfibre cloths, a shaded-off area and Wash & Wax. ‘W&W’ cleans and shines up all surfaces in-depth, leaving a protective wax film for extended effectiveness.

Shine & Go is essentially a travel companion, or what you spray onto your bike after a short ride to keep it in tip-top shape. Yes, it’s not a habit just anyone can form, but boy is it better than cracking out the soapy stuff at the end of the week. It too has a clever formula that helps revive the colours of your motorcycle’s plastic surfaces, like fairings, paint, fenders, and mirrors—leaving a long-lasting non-sticky protective film.
