Monster Yamaha Tech3 unveil new livery

Monster Yamaha Tech3 unveil new livery

Yamaha satellite team riders Colin Edwards and James Toseland open day with presentation in Jerez.

Monster Yamaha Tech3 were up early on Friday morning, opening their garage at the Circuito de Jerez for the unveiling of their 2009 livery. Riders James Toseland and Colin Edwards pulled the covers off their respective M1 bikes to reveal a black and yellow colour scheme.

The photo opportunity –which concluded with the entire team posing for a picture in pit lane- also confirmed that a wall will be in place to separate the two riders, who have become embroiled in conflict since a crew chief switch at the end of 2008. The move mirrors the situation in the Fiat Yamaha garage, where riders Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo remain split by a partition.

Photo opportunities for all MotoGP teams will take place over the course of the weekend, giving a first look at the final livery and garage design looks for the upcoming campaign.
