Guy's need you advice here.
As you are fully aware, the paintwork on the UE is not gloss, what would you advise me to use as wax or cleaner.
Afraid to mar the paint work.
Suggestions are highly appreciated.
Thank you.
Ride safe all.

I had the same concern for my Icon. Went to a local detailer (coincidentally trained in Singapore on the product) to get the issue addressed. I'd mentioned this elsewhere - the Icon doesn't have a clear coat but has a generously thick layer of good quality PPG paint. (~200 microns).

The detailer did the usual wash, blow dry, lubing the chain, claying, mild compounding cum polish & a LSP called Cquartz on paint parts which leaves a protection film which should last at least a year in Singapore. Cost me about S$100 for the bike.

For day to day care I've been advised to use a Quick Detailer spray or Meguiars Wash & wax spray or a waterless wash (I'm using Optima for my cars) and Meguiars Hot Wheels or similar. I usually proceed with a careful removal of dust with a California duster, followed by a quick detailer spray and wipe it off with a Microfiber towel (or the Megs waffle weave sometimes from my car kit).

Since UE comes with a matt finish you might want to skip the above & consider the matt shampoo & wax offerings from Chemical Guys. Only issue with wax is that it doesn't last as long as all these new age Cquartz type of treatments and you still need to go through the pre wax procedures.
