Keith Farmer will race in the British Superbike Championship next season after signing for the Liverpool based PR Kawasaki team.
The Clogher rider competed in the series last season for the Paul Bird Kawasaki team, although he missed the final three rounds because of illness.
"My debut season was tough, especially after winning two Superstock titles as it's a big step up," said Farmer.
"This season is a fresh start and I want to be aiming for the top 10."
Farmer won consecutive National Superstock titles in 2011 and 2012 before progressing to the BSB class last season.
"It is really great for me to be back in the Superbike Championship this year and also to ride a Kawasaki again, as I have already had some previous experience already to build on," added Farmer
"I had a best result of fourth and then I started pushing myself too hard. I want to get consistent results and improve throughout the season.
"I intend to chip away and give the team some strong results throughout the year."
