Ethanol or more correctly Ethyl Alcohol, which is just another name for drinking Alcohol belongs in a decent single malt whiskey. but its perfectly fine in petrol too. Its at the same level in V-Power as it is in standard unleaded. The UK specification means it must be less than 5% so in a litre thats not much at all. definitely not enough to negatively affect a bike thats been designed to run on E10. or 10% Alcohol. (Ethyl-Alcohol)
When skimmer mentions V-Power in UK petrol I imagine he means the higher octane fuel, which is pretty pointless to use in these bikes. The owners manual says 91 RON or higher. so 95 for me. V-Power is 97 I believe and has a more expensive additive package. (anti-friction agents and Injector cleaners/detergents)
Ive used it and cant say i noticed any gains or losses.
