Default Amsoil 10-40 non_MC ?????

This is probly a question for Amsoil Dealers, maybe not. And I guess I shouldn't have written non-MC in title, but, here's my oil question:
I found Amsoil in a local store. They have 3 diff weights available. And was reading the back of the 10-40, and although it is not the MC specific Amsoil that I currently use, it does say it is for motorcycles, and also has the JASO MA, ISO-L-EMA (Wet Clutch) rating along with the other API ratings.
So, is it the same as I'm using ??? Or is there a difference ???
Should I switch to this one, or not ???
It will save me about 25 miles from going to the Vic dealer to get the MC Amsoil.
