First oil change

Hi guys , finally it took 3 weeks to hit 600 miles on my 15 SF 848. I plan on doing the oil change myself and I'm wondering if I can use Castro Power RS 10W-40 4T.
I don't want to stir a debate on what type of oil so just let me know if the 10W-40 weight is ok that is all.

Thanks a lot guys!

Use what it says to use in your manual for the temps you most frequently see. There will be a range of temps / recommended viscosity. Ducati has a decent idea of what works in their bikes. I have no idea what a modern Duc calls for, but us old Duc owners generally favor 15-50 or 20-50, which is in the middle of the temp range for most of us in North America, no idea about Cuba...
