We just finished posting pics of the new Playboy LCR Honda bike, and now here’s the new Monster Yamaha Tech3 machine. Yes, with Kawasaki pulling out of MotoGP this year, Monster Energy will now be the title sponsor for the Tech3 Yamaha team, for the 2009 MotoGP season.

For 2009, Monster also have a personal sponsorship deal going with the reigning MotoGP world champion, Valentino Rossi. According to Monster, they are the no.1 energy drink in the US (in terms of sales volumes) and are now looking at expanding their presence across Europe. You, in the meanwhile, can download some of their Monstrous stuff here

Well, the title sponsor for Kawasaki has been forced to look for other fairing panels to paste their logo on! 'Graceful' as your exit maybe Kawasaki, you've let us down! The Monster logo looked better nowhere than on the Kawa machines.. still though.. for the grater good of racing ;) Go Tech3 Yamaha Go!
