Ian Hutchinson will return to racing action at next month's 53rd Macau Grand Prix aboard a BMW, having missed the Ulster Grand Prix through injury.
The 16-time Isle of Man TT winner competed at the 2019 editions of North West 200 and TT for the official Honda team, though he struggled for success aboard the Fireblade Superbikes and CBR600 Supersport machines.
Hutchinson was absent from the last international road race of the year at the Ulster Grand Prix in August after undergoing surgery to have a plate removed from the right leg he badly broke twice in 2010 and '17.
On Thursday, Macau GP organisers released a full entry list for the 53rd running of the motorcycle race which included Hutchinson for the first time since 2016.
He has been entered under the Milwaukee by SMT BMW banner, marking his first competitive ride on an S1000RR since 2017 when he rode for Tyco BMW on the roads.
It was on a Milwaukee-backed Yamaha run by Shaun Muir Racing - now BMW's official works World Superbike team - that Hutchinson made a sensational winning return at Macau in 2013.
After the 2012 TT - his first since his first horror leg break in '10 - he took 18 months off to recover, but returned to racing at Macau where he grabbed pole and secured the race victory.
Three-time race winner Peter Hickman - who has been nominated for Rider of the Year in the annual Autosport Awards - will return to Macau with the Bathams team to defend his 2018 title aboard the BMW he took to success at the NW200, TT and UGP this season in Smiths Racing colours.
He will be joined by eight-time Macau winner Michael Rutter, who will once again run the Honda RC213V-S MotoGP replica he used at last year's event, and raced at the NW200 and TT in the SBK class.
TT legend John McGuinness, who last won at Macau in 2001, will partner STK TT podium finisher David Johnson at the Paul Bird team on the new Ducati Panigale V4 R.
SSP TT winner Lee Jonston's Ashcourt Racing outfit has added a second BMW for Gary Johnson.
Johnson will ride the exotic HP4 Carbon BMW and Johnson is sticking with the S1000RR he has used in the big bike classes on the roads all year.
This year's Macau Grand Prix will take place from November 16-17.
