Reed, who is preparing to contest the rich Monster Energy Cup this weekend in Las Vegas, will ride the second round of the Australian Supercross Championships at Phillip Island before heading to the Garden City.

The second round of the supercross series will be run in conjunction with the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix on October 27-28.

"I'm really excited to confirm that I'll be heading home for what will be my first Australian appearance under my own TwoTwo Motorsports banner," Reed said.

"Taking the Championship to Phillip Island is a big task and a significant move forward for the sport, when I first heard the news I was both surprised but encouraged by the direction.

"We'd originally planned to make a trip home to be spectators at the event and spend time catching up with friends and family but the opportunity to race at such an amazing circuit along with MotoGP was one I couldn't pass up.

"We saw it as a good chance to race and test the 2013 bike and then felt it would be a significant investment for only a single race so decided to extend it to both Toowoomba and Newcastle.

"It's a win-win for me - I get to race at home, launch the awesome new 2013 Honda, test and develop the bike against guys I consider world-class competitors, catch up with my friends and family and get to spend some time with the guys in the MotoGP paddock as well.
