Motorex 100th Anniversary

Motorex Celebrates 100 Years

This year Motorex marks its 100th anniversary and is celebrating its status as the world’s leading motorcycle lubricant and oil brand.

It all began in 1917 in Switzerland when the company’s founder, Arnold Bucher, started his first business, REX, which initially focused on leather and floor-care products. REX later evolved to become Motorex in 1947. Over the last 100 years, Motorex has remained a family owned business and has grown to become the biggest manufacturer of lubricants in Switzerland with 350 employees, supplying to 80 countries around the world. Today it’s recognised as one of the world’s best known premium motorcycle brands.

The Motorex Timeline

Motorex offers a selection of high-performance and easy to use oils, lubricants and care products. It boasts product ranges designed to fulfil customers’ every lubrication need and remains committed to providing top quality, tier one products to the trade.

The Motorex brand has supported 104 world champions over 100 years and have been chosen by world leading motorsport teams to help them secure the winning title. Most recently Motorex has been selected by the Beta Bono and KTM factory teams at 2017’s MotoGP and EnduroGP championships.

Motorex will enter its 100th year with the same high performance, high adrenaline momentum that has propelled the brand’s global status over the last century.
