    From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Octane_rating it looks like the equivalents are 91.5 RON for regular and 95 RON for super ?

    I think that petrol can be as low as 85 octane, if that's the case, coupled with the altitudes you are riding at, then that combination would give you the symptoms you describe.

    As has been suggested, try an octane booster additive next time you fill up, if available.
