Pretty much all brake fluid is synthetic these days - it seems like that maker added the label as a selling point. As long as the fluid is DOT4 it is just fine for your bike.

I'm sure that it is OK, since it says fuly compatable with DOT 3 and DOT 4. It was all I could find in the consumer parts houses like PepBoys and AutoZone. However, FWIW, I found DOT 4 at my local NAPA store for $5.55 including 6% sales tax this week.
