James Hiller will remain with the Bournemouth Kawasaki team for the 11th straight year to compete in 2019 Isle of Man TT and North West 200 events.

And for the first time, under the banner Quattro Plant Wicked Coatings Kawasaki, the veteran will be joined at in Northern Ireland by team mate Glenn Irwin.

Although Hillier is only led by Michael Dunlop and John McGuinness in the number of 130mph+ laps at the TT, he is still looking for his first win.

“Although I was really pleased with my performance last year, unfortunately I didn’t manage get that elusive win,” said Hillier/

“However, consistency is key and signing with Bournemouth Kawasaki Racing for the 11th successive year gives me the best chance of achieving my goal of getting a big bike win at the TT.

“It’s certainly the best package and the new Kawasaki ZX10-RR looks good on paper so I’m feeling really confident. All I can do is keep putting in maximum effort; the team believe in me and I have faith in them to build a bike that’s good enough. I just need a bit of luck and for everything to come together on the day.

“Pre-season testing gets under way next month and I’m looking forward to getting back on the track and putting the new bike through its paces.”
