Dunlop previously took victory in the 2018 Superbike TT onboard the Tyco BMW machine – a win that took TAS Racing’s total number of wins on the island to an impressive 19.
Speaking about the decision in a statement, Dunlop said: "I'm looking forward to working with the TAS Racing boys again this year. We grabbed a Superbike TT win last year, which was a good start and the goal this year will be to go after both the Superbike and Senior TT wins.
"BMW has launched a new bike, which I should be riding in a few weeks’ time. With the added improvements to the package and a second season with the same team, we should be in a good place to go after both the big wins on the Island."
