"When we decided to return to British Superbikes, signing both Shakey and Stuart was always the plan and I'm delighted they've come on board with us. We've won British championships as well as World championship races together and for me it's my dream team.
“We have proved that the Kawasaki ZX-10R is a fantastic bike and have won on it at BSB in 2010 so we know what we need to do. I promised Stuart a deal straight after his crash and he'll be back to full fitness very soon and with Shakey keen to make up for missing out this year, we are ideally placed."
Byrne's defection from HM Plant Honda, coupled to the confirmation that Ryuichi Kiyonari will also not race with the team in 2012, means the 2010 championship-winning operation will have a new rider line-up for next season.
