All in all, representatives from Cameroon, Croatia, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, the Netherlands, Bulgaria, Latvia, Macedonia, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, and Turkey attended the presentation and expanded on the promotion of Repsol products to their markets.

Repsol introduced new types of oil specially designed for use with particular motorbike engines, demonstrating its more specialized approach, as well as coming-up with two new slogans. The new corporate slogan is now ‘Your Energy Moves Us,’ while the second for the motorbike business branch is ‘Whatever Your Bike Needs, We Have It Now.’
