While many will stick with what the factory manual says to use....others will use different types of oil....i.e. synthetic versus dino oil. If it's a new bike/engine I would go with the factory spec oil until it's well broken in before changing to a synth oil or blend....or a different viscosity.

DO NOT USE OIL THAT SAYS: "ENERGY CONSERVING".

I use a semi synth in mine. I ride in the cold so during the winter I use thinner oil. The temp for where you are located and what temp you will be riding in determins the oil you need to use. Colder weather thinner oil.
