Go with something that has a built reputation for decades (Motul). I am running Motul 710 and 800 on my scooters, I also have the Malossi 166cc on my PX and it runs great. My .2c

Fuchs has been around for decades, and is one of the largest lubricant manufacturers in the world. I used Fuchs Silkoline synthetic 2T when I lived in the US and was quite satisfied. I wouldn't worry about them.

Can't get AGIP here, but can get Eni. Have you heard of that one?

According to wikipedia (for what they are worth), Fuchs Petrolube is the largest manufacturer of lubricants in the world. In the US, they are labeled "Fuchs Silkoline", and are a respected premium label. The Ducati dealer we frequented in WA State highly recommended Silkoline 2T. Worked great for us.

It's a big world out there.
