Question Motor Oil Qs

The Avenger 200 DTSi requires SAE 20W50 of API 'SJ' + JASO 'MA' grade or Superior.

I read this link to figure it out:
motor oil: Information from Answers.com
Couldn't make head or tails out of it.

Q1: Where can I get SAE 20W50 of API 'SJ' + JASO 'MA' in Delhi? Or do I rely solely on ProBiking service center (God help me that case).

Q2: What grade would be superior?

Castrol/Veedol/Motul/Servo/Mak all have 20W50 Mineral oil which are 'suitable' for your bike.
Moreover, the service centre guys stock the oil the is required for your bike, why do you want to go outside and buy one anyways?

Want to replace mine. See my post on Avenger running-in queries. The delivery chap put friction modifier (NANOEnergizer) in the oil. So I think the running-in is not happening properly.

Take it to your nearest service centre and get it changed there, use the oil that they are using atleast till the first 2K kms!
