#1: Torque Detail Mirror Shine

Torque Detail Mirror Shine has not been on the market for long (less than a decade), but it has won over many motorcycle cleaning enthusiasts because of its ease of use and value proposition.

It contains a synthetic wax that delivers deep, super-glossy shines without leaving any streaks. The wax is hydrophobic, so it causes water to bead up and roll off; it also prevents dirt and grime from sticking to a bike’s painted surfaces.

This product also integrates a unique blend of synthetic polymers that will bond with your bike’s paint to form a lasting layer of protection. Also included is silicon dioxide that adds ceramic qualities to this patented polymer-based formula. Thanks to the above, Torque Detail Mirror Shine forms a glass-like, resilient layer that protects against oxidation, UV-ray damage, and harsh chemicals for up to six months.    

Also, it is easy to apply Torque Detail Mirror Shine. Just spray it onto your bike and buff with a clean microfiber towel.

#2: CAR GUYS Hybrid Wax

The CAR GUYS Hybrid Wax is a blend of both natural and synthetic compounds, i.e. natural Carnauba wax and a patented synthetic polymer additive. The Carnauba wax delivers a deep, glossy shine while the synthetic polymer additive works at the molecular nano level, forming a protective layer that shields against the effects of the sun’s ultraviolet rays and harsh chemicals.  

Like Torque Detail Mirror Shine, this product is a spray-on, wipe-off product, so it also scores points in ease of use. However, you must shake the bottle well before use; if you don’t, it may leave some streaks. The Carnauba wax tends to slowly separate from the synthetic formula when the bottle is left to sit for long - a problem that plagues many hybrid wax products. You should also avoid applying the CAR GUYS Hybrid Wax onto your bike’s surfaces when they are hot.

#3: Wash Wax ALL Wax

The Wash Wax ALL Wax is a do-it-all type of product that will make it more affordable and convenient for you to wax your motorcycle. It will both clean your bike and wax it in one procedure, and it can be used with or without a prior washdown. When used as a waterless wash and wax, its thick soap suds will saturate and lift dirt off your bike’s painted surface, making it easy for you to wipe off the dirt. The product will also leave a synthetic wax on your bike’s surface that will provide a glossy shine. The Wash Wax ALL Wax is also an easy-to-use, spray-on, wipe-off product, and it can be used on all types of surfaces.

However, this versatility comes at a price. The product is not as potent as a wax and protectant as other products that are more dedicated to motorcycle waxing.

#4: Meguiar's Motorcycle Liquid Wax Wet Look

The Meguiar's® MC20206 Motorcycle Liquid Wax Wet Look is designed to restore wax and protect painted motorcycle surfaces. Its proprietary synthetic formula will remove swirl marks and fine scratches to smoothen your bike’s painted surfaces. It will also leave a brilliant, glossy shine while causing your bike’s colors to pop. This wax product also doubles-up as a protectant that will shield your bike’s paint from the harmful effects of UV rays and other forms of paint damage and paint sealants damage.      

This product can be applied using a hand foam applicator or a machine polisher. After applying it, use a microfiber towel to wipe off any excess and to buff the surface.

#5: Turtle Wax Hybrid Solutions Pro Flex Wax

The Turtle Wax Hybrid Solutions Pro Flex Wax is another great motorcycle wax product. It is also a spray-on, wipe-off product, and just a small amount will go a long way. This flexible spray wax can also be used on both wet and dry surfaces, and it delivers inspiring surface slickness and an eye-popping, high-gloss shine.

Also, because it has been infused with a patent-pending graphene formulation, this product also does an awesome job of protecting painted surfaces from UV-ray damage, water spots, and corrosive contaminants like acid rain and winter road salt. It can also be used as a standalone protective coating after paint correction.

#6: Chemical Guys Butter Wet Wax

The Chemical Guys Butter Wet Wax is a favorite in many auto detailing circles because of its ability to deliver a deep, wet look. Therefore, it is worth considering when you need to prep your bike for a car/motorbike show. It is made from Carnauba wax that has been specially blended into a buttery, smooth creme. You can count on this product to cleanse your bike’s paintwork, to brighten it up and maintain a brilliant shine, and to provide dependable protection from the sun’s UV rays.

Chemical Guys Butter Wet Wax can also be applied by hand or with the help of a machine polisher. It spreads easily and wipes off just as effortlessly.

#7: Collinite No. 845 Insulator Wax

The Collinite No. 845 Insulator Wax has been around for many years but it still holds its own in the highly competitive motorcycle wax market. Its manufacturer, Collinite, has been making top-quality car care items since 1936, so it is among the most experienced producers in this field. Collinite No. 845 Insulator Wax delivers a high-gloss shine while also providing 4-7 months of solid protection from the elements and harsh or abrasive contaminants.

Worth noting, however, is that this product does its best work on painted metal surfaces, you would need special metal polish. It is not as effective on rubber, black trim, non-skid, vinyl, glass, or non-painted plastic.

#8: Meguiar’s Synthetic X-Press Spray Wax

The Meguiar’s Synthetic X-Press Spray Wax is designed to enable you to achieve maximum results with less time and effort. You just spray it on and wipe it off. It spreads easily and wipes off equally so, without leaving streaks or white residue. It also provides a deep, wet look, especially on dark-coloured paint. Its Hydrophobic Polymer Technology™ will also keep causing water to bead up and roll off for a long time.

One big plus with this product is that it can be applied in direct sunlight, so it will be okay to apply it in the open and at any time of the day.

#9: TriNova Waterless Car Wash and Wax Kit

As its name suggests, the TriNova Waterless Car Wash and Wax Kit can both wash and wax your motorbike in one step, saving you both time and resources. You just spray a generous amount of the product onto your motorcycle using the spray bottle and let it sit for a while as its proprietary polymer formulation lifts dirt and grime from your bike’s surface. You then use a clean microfiber towel to gently wipe off the dirt and grime your motorcycle’s paint. The product will leave a thin layer of wax that will repel the sun’s rays while giving your motorcycle a brilliant shine.  

As packaged, the TriNova Waterless Car Wash and Wax Kit has enough product to clean an average-sized car 40 times, so expect it to deliver many more washes of your motorcycle.

#10: Optimum No Rinse Wash & Wax

The Optimum No Rinse Wash & Wax will also save you from having to use different products when washing and waxing your motorcycle because it is designed to both wash and wax your motorcycle. It contains active soap ingredients that will encapsulate and lift dirt from your motorcycle’s painted surfaces while you will be washing it.

You also won’t need to rinse your motorbike with water when washing it with this product, so the amount of water you will use for the entire process will be very little. One gallon of water will be enough. After washing, you will just use a clean microfiber towel to wipe off the product and dirt. The product will leave a layer of wax that will make your motorcycle look shiny and fresh.

#11: Shine Armor Car Wax

Another wax product that you can use when you do not have much time to dedicate to waxing your bike is the Shine Armor Car Wax. This spray-on, wipe-off wax product will deliver a slick, glossy finish in just 15 minutes. It contains a unique blend of Brazilian Carnauba wax and synthetic polymers, so it offers both natural wax and synthetic wax properties. The Carnauba wax delivers a deep, wet look and glossy shine, while the synthetic polymers bond form a protective layer that will last for several months.

The Shine Armor Car Wax excels in its ability to repel water. It will maintain that water beading effect for longer than many similar products.

The Turtle Wax 50834 1-Step Wax & Dry spray wax will enable you to skip an entire step when washing and waxing your motorcycle, so it will save you time and energy.

After that, dry your motorcycle off using a clean, plush microfiber towel. This product’s ‘Minute Wax Shine’ technology will deliver a brilliant shine and solid protection from the elements.

The S100 13700W Carnauba Paste Wax is one of the few all-natural motorcycle waxes on the market. It is made from pure Carnauba wax and beeswax, and so it excels in delivering great depth of shine and also in restoring color brilliance.
