Your bike is built to require premium, or "super" gasoline. The manual calls for 95 octane, rated by the Research Method, or 95 RON. You will need to know whether the gas (OK, petrol) you're using is rated by Research Octane Number (RON), Motor Octane Number (MON), or some other method. Pumps in the US use an average of both to yield what they call an Anti-Knock Index (AKI). 95 RON is roughly 86-87 MON in most cases, or 90-91 AKI in the US.
Octane number measures only the fuel's resistance to detonation, and nothing else whatsoever, so the fact that your new fuel starts the bike better is coincidental.
