Yamaha has a long-term global alliance with the team’s title sponsor, Monster Energy Company, based on their mutual passion for racing. A first multiple-year title sponsorship agreement with the Yamaha Factory Racing MotoGP team was signed in the summer of 2018 and came naturally, as Monster Energy Company sponsors multiple Yamaha teams (among them the Yamaha Factory Racing MotoGP team since 2013) and riders (including Quartararo and Morbidelli) in various racing classes. The multiple-year title sponsorship agreement with the Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP team was extended at the Catalan GP last year, and fittingly celebrated when Fabio Quartararo went on to win the race that same weekend.
With the color scheme of the Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP YZR-M1 updated for 2023, the pit box, the riders’ leathers, and the team clothing couldn’t stay behind. The new camouflage look blends Yamaha’s colors (with a new addition of grey) with the adventurous lifestyle color scheme of Monster Energy. Their iconic monster claw branding remains instantly recognizable on the bikes, in the Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP team logo, and on the team uniforms.
Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP are also pleased to announce that throughout the 2023 racing season the bike will continue to feature the slogans of Yamaha Motor Philippines other PT Yamaha Indonesia Motor Manufacturingstarting from the IRTA MotoGP Official Pre-Season Tests held from 5-7 February and 10-12 February in Sepang, Malaysia, and on 11-12 March in Portimão, Portugal.
