I'm pretty sure the RSX-S uses 0W30.

Wouldn't doubt if they used it in bikes. They are very high performance I mean 148hp from a 1 litre. I would say thats high performance. But then again most dealerships don't deal with bikes. I always used whatever the motorcycle dealership gave me for my bike.

maybe for colder weather. i know you use 20w-30 in the summer, you should switch to 10w-30 for the winter. car starts quicker and smoother...
