if there is a difference, how is it diff ? Also what is the 20W/50 ? Its viscosity but what does the W and the numbers mean?

Yes, there is a difference. If your motorcycle has a wet clutch (most do) you can only use motorcycle oil.
The difference is on the back of the bottle. There is a ring printed on the back and in the ring it says “energy conserving”. That means that there are additives that may affect how your motorcycles clutch works.
I’ve heard of people using car oil with no problems but if I were you, I would spend the extra money on motorcycle specific oil.
