Versys 1000 ( 2016 ) - Service Interval

Hello all. I just upgrade from a Versys 650 (2011) to a Versys 1000 (2016).

I read the owners manual it says the Versys 1000 service interval is 6000 KM.

I have two questions :-
1) Does anyone know what is the oil they use for these services ( semi or fully synthetic ) ?
2) Is there any way to stretch this service intervals to say like 10,000km ?

Thanks and cheers to all.

Kelvin from Malaysia.

So can a fully synthetic oil drag the change interval to 10000 kms ?

No. You can better take care of your engine and transmission with full synthetic oil, but you should never extend your oil change intervals under any circumstances... It only takes 3.8 liters for an oil and filter change.
