Kyle Webster will continue in the 450 class with Factory Honda Australia in 2024.

Kyle Webster and Wilson Todd will make up the 2024 Factory Honda Australia 450 (MX1) team with Jed Beaton departing.

“Kyle and Wilson have won 450 Australian Motocross Championship rounds and both of them have won 250 titles. They know how to win, and we believe that they are capable of contending for a 450 crown. We want to thank Jed Beaton for his hard work and dedication this season – he gave Honda race wins and second overall in the championship,” said team director Yarrive Konsky, who explained his reason for bringing Wilson up to the MX1 class.

“It was time for Wilson to step up and race the 450 outdoors; he has dominated on the CRF250R, and we feel that he will be a serious threat for the 450 title in his rookie season, especially as he has already proven he can win on the bigger capacity motorcycle,” Konsky continued. “With regards to Kyle, he is more than capable of winning. He has proved it time and time again. We will work together on consistency and a greater frequency of racing throughout next year so that we are better prepared going into each round.”

After two 250cc championships since returning from Europe two years ago and four in total, Wilson Todd will now step up to the 450 class.

Wilson Todd appreciates the opportunity Honda is providing and would not have agreed to it if he himself did not believe that he was ready.

“I know that I can win with this bike and team; I will just need to work differently to be better prepared. I am happy to be with Honda for the next two years. We have not decided which class I will race in Supercross next year, but I will be ready for the 450 motocross series come March,” Todd said.

Kyle Webster is also pleased to continue with Honda for the next couple of years and is eager for redemption as he admits the overall this year did not reflect his speed or the team’s effort.

“We had some things out of our control happen this year in motocross and some things happened that were in our control. Each contributed to our disappointing overall. There were also many positives. We won two rounds out of seven and nearly won a third. We know we can win. The team and I have plans to be better prepared going into next year, and I know that we will not leave any stones unturned. Honda is home for me, and we will come out stronger next year from the lessons that we have learnt from this season’s championship,” said Webster.

The team will announce further changes to its rider line-up later this month.
