Aprilia has confirmed the status of new signing Eugene Laverty for the 2012 World Superbike Championship season.

The 25-year-old Irishman, who finished fourth in his debut WSBK campaign with Yamaha, has now been confirmed as Max Biaggi's team-mate at the factory Aprilia Racing team.

Laverty, who has signed a two-year Aprilia deal, therefore takes the place of Leon Camier.

Double 2011 race winner Laverty was fastest on his RSV4 debut at the recent Portimao test.
