I recently asked my dealer the same question (after 4000 km): no reason to change. Wait untill the next service ( can't remember 12.000 or 15.000)

 :0461:Consult your  owners handbook and you will  see Honda and most other   manufacturers only specify standard oils.Very rarely fully synthetic or semi which is a luxury,exspensive and not available in some countries. I agree once a year is right for most owners who do not do a lot of miles.  :300:
