He ended the 2017 season 26th overall and joined the Idemitsu Honda Team Asia for the 2018 season.

Nagashima had a better 2018 season, finishing 20th in the overall standings, taking his best result of 8th in Thailand.

For 2019, Nagashima joined Remy Gardner in the ONEXOX TKKR SAG Team which gave the 27-year-old take his first pole position at the Austrian Grand Prix.

Nagashima currently lies 13th in the 2019 Moto2 Championship.

He will join Aki Ajo‘s Ajo Motorsport team for the 2020 season, as they return to Kalex chassis.
