A livery update for 2024 was unveiled by Team Honda HRC at its official introduction at the American Honda headquarters last night, headlined by 450 class signings Jett Lawrence and Hunter Lawrence alongside 250 prospects, Jo Shimoda and Chance Hymas.

Held in the new Collection Hall and meeting space at the manufacturer’s Torrance, California, campus, all four riders previewed the upcoming Monster Energy Supercross season.

The factory squad is coming off a record-setting 2023 season that saw it take a record six professional AMA championships. Its new look boasts increased white ascents, in addition to increased Honda branding, a revised CRF placement on the shroud and custom number fonts across all four entries.

“We just finished our 2024 season introduction for Team Honda HRC and the support teams,” said Team Honda HRC manager Lars Lindstorm. “We’ve had an incredibly rigorous off-season compared to normal, with a lot of different events and traveling. Now it feels like this was kind of the last thing on the agenda before Anaheim.

“Everyone worked extremely hard to make this event happen, but we planned well and it went off without a hitch. I’m really proud of the whole team, and the riders for being troopers—especially Jett and Hunter after coming from the Honda Racing Thanks Day in Japan. Now it’s all about dialing in the bikes, getting trucks ready and preparing for the first race.

“I’m super-excited for the season coming and really stoked to have these guys on the team right now. Our team atmosphere last year was great, and it’s even better now. I feel like we’re going to have an incredible vibe all year.”

Heading up Team Honda HRC is Jett Lawrence, who at 20 years old has already accumulated six AMA crowns, including three in 2023 – the 250SX West title, the AMA Pro Motocross 450 championship and the inaugural SuperMotocross World Championship title.

The 2024 season will be Jett’s first campaigning the premier class indoors. Joining Jett aboard another factory CRF450RWE is his brother Hunter Lawrence, who last season earned the 250SX East and AMA Pro Motocross 250 crowns.

As previously announced, Shimoda takes Hunter’s old spot aboard the team’s CRF250R, along with returning hopeful Hymas. The four-rider lineup is among the strongest ever fielded by the squad, which is intent on carrying its success forward into the coming season.
