North Yorkshire rider Dan Linfoot will ride for Hawk Racing in the 2012 British Superbike Championship.
Linfoot will return for a third season in the Championship after leaving his last team, Sorrymate Honda in July.
Linfoot said: "It was always my goal to stay in BSB next season, it's where I want to be and the Moto2 experience this year can only have helped.
"The new rules for 2012 will make it a more level playing field and that will definitely be great for everyone."
The 23-year-old from Knaresborough continued: "I think the experience the team had last season and the rule changes mean we can be aiming for some good results.
"The BMW has performed well in the Superstock class for the past couple of seasons and that shows that it is one of the best bikes on the market at the moment.
"There is no reason why that shouldn't translate to BSB.
"There are lots of question marks in terms of who is going to be the ones to beat for next season with the various changes, so we will have to wait for round one at Brands Hatch.
"The team have been working hard on the bikes and I want to be up there from the start."
