13-time winner to ride brand new superbike
Michael Dunlop has signed for the new-look Bennetts Suzuki team for TT 2017.
After months of speculation, it's been confirmed the 13-time TT winner will ride the all-new GSX-R1000.
It means the outright lap record holder around the Mountain Course is staying with Steve and Stuart Hicken who will run the official Suzuki British Superbike team.
Dunlop is set to contest the opening round at Donnington Park in April and will also race at the North West 200, Southern 100 and Ulster Grand Prix.
He will be at Mallory Park today for a shakedown before heading for tests in Spain at Cartagena and Almeria.
