In addition to signing Josh Brookes and Glen Richards for their BSB effort, HM Plant Honda have also signed Steve Plater to ride their Supersport bike and have retained Superstock champion Steve Brogan in the litre class.
Brogan took the series win this year with a dominant display, by winning eight of the 11 races and wrapping up the title with one round to go. Steve will not be riding in the British Supersport Championship – as he did this season – in order to concentrate on the Superstock 1000 title.
“I’m made up to have had such a successful year by winning eight races. It was helped by being comfortable on the bike right from the start. I’ve really enjoyed the racing this year as I’ve not only won from way out front, but I’ve been battling with the other riders and that’s what I’ve enjoyed," said the Liverpudlian.
"Although I make no secret of the fact that a Superbike ride is my ultimate goal, I’m very happy to be staying with the HM Plant Honda team in the Superstock championship as I think that next year will be a good year in the class, especially with some new machines out on the grid which will only add to the racing and provide a good challenge for retaining my title.” 
Plater, who has spent his time this season in Supersport, pure road racing and World Endurance, has been rebuilding his career after injury and is over the moon to be part of the factory effort.
“I came into the British Supersport series late after the TT, but was never off the podium when I did race and champ Glen only beat me the once at Brands, so I’m proud of that! It’s great to be back with a factory team and even better to be back with Honda after five years away," said the former bricklayer.
"It was flattering to get the call, especially after I’ve been rebuilding my career over the last few years after injury. I know the team well from my British Superbike days and while I know next year’s British Supersport series will be completely different, it’s my job to go out there and win the championship. That’s why Honda is employing me and I’m going to give 110%.”
