This is Not Rossi’s New Yamaha MotoGP Livery

The great winter depression is nearly over for MotoGP fans, as tomorrow Ducati Corse will debut its 2013 team(s) for the premier class, and soon enough we will see similar events from Honda and Yamaha as well. In February, the boys with their bikes will be back on the track, as the pre-season tests at Sepang again give us our first glimpse at the teams’ progress over the off-season.

Of course, the anticipation doesn’t stop some. Take graphic designer and DeviantArtist Samuel from Italy, he spent the long-winter months photoshopping together what many Rossi fans have been speculating about: the nine-time World Champion’s new livery now that Monster is sponsoring the Yamaha Racing MotoGP team.

Paying a rumored €4 million to Yamaha, which includes the reported €1 million buyout clause of Jorge Lorenzo’s personal Rockstar contract, Monster isn’t footing nearly enough of Yamaha’s racing bill to get the treatment seen above in Samuel’s rendering — as splendid as it looks.

With Monster only a basic team sponsor, and not the title sponsor of the Yamaha team, the likelihood of Rossi’s new livery being dominated by the Monster neon-green is virtually zero. Instead, expect Monster to be represented about as well as Japan petroleum brand ENEOS (ENEOS run by JX Nippon Oil) on Rossi’s new bike and leathers.

The scantily clad Monster Energy girls? You will have to find them farther back on the grid, keeping Cal and Bradley cool with their umbrellas and short skirts.
