Some may differ, but I've run full synthetic in everything I've owned since 1975, when Mobil-1 came out.
When I changed over to full synthetic in my Isuzu Trooper, I gained 2 MPG, which I verified with my mileage records.
It's especially needed in air-cooled engines due to higher operating temperature range.
The Mobil-1 4T 10W40 for bikes is around $9/liter at Autozone on average.

I've used Mobil 1 Full synthetic in my Audi, Subaru STI
My RC I use Amsoil and really like it.
My Aprilia i special order Agip (9.99 a liter). i have to have it shipped so i try to buy in bulk, but may give something else a try.
Not sure what i will use in the BMW yet, Dealer did the first oil change at 600 miles.
