"We have had a few seasons with the BMW now and I think that we can take another step forward in 2016," Jessopp said. "This year we had our best results with the S1000RR with top ten finishes and so that is what we have to target next year, because we know that we are capable of more of that with the package we have as a team.

"We recently had the podium finish at Macau, so we have a break now before testing to make a plan ready to start next year in the best way possible."

Jessopp becomes the 25th rider announced on the grid for the 2016 BSB championship.
