BALLYMONEY rider Michael Dunlop looks set to ride a Honda in the Supersport races at the international road races in 2018.
The speculation follows a social media posting at the weekend from World Supersport outfit PTR, claiming that they had been preparing a machine for the 28-year-old.
A tweet on Performance Technical Racing's offical Twitter account read: 'Finished Michael Dunlop's CBR600R for the roads. Really pleased to be working with Micky D & Hunts Motorcycles again.'
The 15-time Isle of Man TT winner has yet to officially unveil his plans for this year but reports suggest that Bennett's Suzuki and Tyco BMW are looking like his options for the Superbike and Superstock classes.
The 28-year-old rode a 600cc Yamaha to victory at the TT in 2017, his sixth success in the Supersport class at the Isle of Man event, before going on to win in the blue riband Senior event on the Hawk Racing-backed Suzuki.
