Three lucky guys recently took home a Honda CBR250R finished in eye-catching Shell Advance livery each. Penangnite Abdul Rohim Salleh, 26; Shahbudin Saad, 51, from Sungai Petani; and Phan Chin Siong, 26, from Johor were grand prize winners in the Shell Advance ‘Win the Ride of Your Choice’ contest.

The trio were given a choice of the Honda CBR250R, the off-road capable Kawasaki KLX250 or the Vespa GTS250 scooter. All three chose the single-cylinder Honda sport bike.

Held from June till August, participants had to purchase one one-litre pack of Shell Advance 4T motorcycle engine oil and SMS the correct answer to a simple question along with the unique code found on the pack label. The contest received more than 12,000 entries.


“The exclusive Shell Advance design is really special and the bike looks even better in real life than in the pictures!” said mechanic Abdul Rohim.

Merchant seaman Phan was thankful that his sister submitted the contest entry on his behalf. “This gorgeous bike is certainly an incentive for me to take up riding again,” said Phan, who used to own a Yamaha kapcai before trading it for a car.

The Shell Advance 4T range features RCE Technology designed to deliver reliable oil performance by helping remove deposits and maintain viscosity for better protection; better control via smoother gear changes and slippage prevention; and a more enjoyable ride by reducing vibration and noise. It is available in four clearly tiered products designed for specific types of bikes and performance requirements.
