Keith Amor set for full roads campaign

1 of 2

Former Honda TT Legends rider Keith Amor will make a full return to the road racing paddock in 2015, expanding his bikes to include a 1000cc machine for the first time since his retirement after injury at the 2011 event.

“I will have six bikes in total, three BMWS and three Hondas. The plan is to have two stockers, one set up for the dry and the other for the wet, alongside the superbike. I am getting Motorrad support from Germany with engines, electronics and data and we will run Ohlins factory suspension on all the bikes.”

With sponsorship from oil rig fire suppression company RigDeluge, Amor is out to recreate his golden season in 2010, where he took wins at the North West 200 and Ulster Grand Prix as well as a podium at the Isle of Man TT.

“I won the Superstock race at the North West in 2010 and that was my best ever season. I want to go back to what I know and what I ran then. I am in a really good position and this is my job for the next two years. I have my brother Guy as my mechanic setting the bikes up for me and I just have to build myself up to race speed.”

His first 2015 test will be at Cartagena in March before making his first race outing at the North West 200 in May.
