Pirelli will continue as exclusive tyre supplier for the World Superbike Championship.

The current agreement with Pirelli, WSBK's exclusive tyre supplier since control rubber was introduced for 2004, was due to expire at the end of next year.

However the new agreement confirms Pirelli will keep its current role for all the classes of the FIM Superbike World Championship until the end of the 2018 season, having 'won the latest tender'.
