Yoshimura Suzuki has confirmed the three World Superbike Championship events it will enter in 2010, with Yukio Kagayama and Daisaku Sakai sharing rider duties.

The team announced towards the end of 2009 that it was planning to quit the All-Japan Superbike Championship in favour of a part-time campaign on the world scene as a satellite Suzuki outfit.

The team has now revealed it will participate in just three rounds in 2010, at Assen, Imola and Magny-Cours, with Kagayama and Sakai riding the GSX-R1000.
