Having been unable to secure a place in WorldSBK for 2020, Markus Reiterberger will stay with BMW but move to the Asian championship.
The 25-year-old will race for the Onexox BMW TKKR Racing Team next season where he will ride a Superstock version of the new RR.
“I am already excited about the Asia Road Racing Championship and am looking forward to riding with the Onexox BMW TKKR Racing Team in the coming season,” said Reiterberger.
“This championship is getting stronger all the time and is attracting more and more international interest, including from manufacturers. The squad has shown this season that it is one of the best teams in the series.
“I think we can achieve a lot together in 2020. I have shown that I do well on the Superstock versions of the RR, not least as Superstock European champion. All the ingredients for a strong season are in place and I am looking forward to getting started.”
