I did several searches and did not find out the answer to my question.  I have a 2016 GRiSO in Rosso Red and wanted to know the best way to care
for that flat paint, do you guys have good luck with wax and if you use wax, what kind?  I have had this GRiSO for less then a month and want to clean
it, just want to do it the best way.  I already have just about everything Mothers makes and will use the Quick Wax if I don't hear of something better.

Thanks in advance.  Dave

No wax on flat paint. I like this stuff:

You can get it at some auto parts stores or Amazon.

Amazon has the Star Brite but they also had a Rat Wax kit for $30.00 that had the wash and treatment for the matte finish, I bought that one. Dave

I’ve been using Meguiars Cleaner-Wax for 5 years. It says it’s “clear coat safe”. It’s actually given the matte a lot more shine. My front fender actually looks like semi gloss now which I like better.

Wax free wash in with the water and matt detailer.
It the UK I use Autoglym pure shampoo and Muck-off Matt finish detailer.
Don’t know if these products are readily available in other parts of the world.

Chemical Guys has an entire kit for matte finish. They also have a waterless spray wash that I use for a quick cleaning when its NOT lovebug season. Moto Guzzi's don't like water.

You guys are overthinking this. I just use dishwashing liquid in a bit of warm water. Dust pan brush to splooge it over the bike, then high pressure washer to wash it off.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I'm with beetle here.

I just upgrade to Raine X spot free car wash. A few brushes, rag and a garden hose seem to be fine. I use the air compressor to blow off most the remaining water then wipe down what's left.

Problem being good days for washing bikes are also good days for riding them.

The hi-pressure washer is for dirt bikes. Mostly muddy trails here.

GRiSO can be a dirt(y) bike.
