according to the manufacturer:

(P/N 293 600 121) or a 5W 40 semi-synthetic
(minimum) or synthetic.
motorcycle oil meeting the requirements for
API service SL, SJ, SH or SG classification.
Always check the API service label
on the oil container.
To avoid damaging the clutch, do not use
a motor oil meeting the API service SM or ILSACGF-4
Clutch slippage will occur.

based on that guidance, I can tell you Valvoline 4T Full Synthetic 10W-40 is popular among rt owners.

I can also tell you ANY commercially available synthetic engine oil with an API SL, SJ, SH or SG on the label in a 5W-40 or 10W-40 weight will meet all of the manufacturers criteria.
