Honda is participating in the FIM* MotoGP World Championship Moto3 class as Honda Team Asia, to discover and nurture from the Asia region riders to compete at the highest levels.

Honda has announced the riders who will compete in the 2021 season from this team.

For Honda Team Asia, Yuki Kunii will continue for a second season, joining him Andi Farid Izdihar, who change the category from Moto2. This change is due to a technical reason.

The staff believes that Andi will have more options to show all his potential as a rider in this category. Hiroshi Aoyama will continue his role as team manager.

"This first season it has been not so easy. I'm happy that Honda gives me another opportunity to be part of the World Championship. Honda and all the staff have seen that Moto3 is more adapted to my skills. Of course, I accept that, and I'm proud to have another grid opportunity, where I'll try all my best on this new challenge."

"I'm thrilled to continue one more year in Moto3 World Championship on this Team. I want to thanks Idemitsu, Honda and all the sponsors who support the Team. This first year as a rookie I've been learning a lot, although it has been a strange year. Now it's time to continue working to improve because I have had the chance to have as a teammate a rider like Ai, from whom I have learned a lot."

"First of all, I would like to thanks Idemitsu and all our sponsors. We're pleased to continue the 2021 season in two World Championship categories. In Moto3, we will have Yuki Kunii and Andi Farid Izdihar. It will be the second season for Yuki, and I think this second year will be possible for him to have chances to fight for the Championship. He can be more competitive because he has the speed and the spirit. About Andi, it will not be an entirely new category for him. He grew up riding small bikes in the past, going very fast, for example in the Asia Talent Cup and the FIM CEV. We believe he has good skills to ride in Moto3 and to be competitive as well. In summary, we have a group of very young and talented riders, and we would like to see how can they perform and how can they ride the 2021 season."
