“We're delighted to be continuing out long-standing relationship with Michael. He's a truly exceptional talent and we share his appetite for success.
Road racing is an important pat of the team's heritage and both the TT and the North West 200 are big priorities for us alongside our Bennetts British Superbikes campaign.
The competition this year will be as strong as ever but we'll be doing everything we can to compete for wins.”
