Finnish WorldSSP star Niki Tuuli has joined the CIA Insurance Honda team for 2018 and will ride alongside Britain's Andrew Irwin.
Tuuli erupted on to the World Supersport scene in 2016 showing huge potential with second places in Germany, France and Spain and the fastest lap award at all three races.
This year he returned as a permanent rider with Kallio Racing for his first full campaign in the class, finishing seventh overall in the points standings.
“I’m really excited about joining the CIA Landlord Insurance Honda team and also looking forward to the upcoming season. There are lot of new things coming ahead and I’m waiting eagerly our first test session so that we can start building our package,” said Tuuli.
“Honda is new bike for me, but I know the bike is great and the team also has a long history with Honda. I’m really confident that we can be a winning combination. I would like to thank the whole team and my sponsors for this great opportunity. I’m ready for the next season with hard working attitude.”
