Even though the initial photos of the 2014 livery showed a bigger white area on the front cowl, we now learn that not much has been changed from the previous year… save the large Movistar logo on either side of the bike and on the sides of the tail section, as well.

As far as we could tell now, it appears like Monster’s logo was not moved too much from the position it used to be when Valentino Rossi first showed his 2014 bike in Malaysia. Yamaha and Monster had long talks ahead of the Tuning Forks signed the 5-year deal with Movistar, as the exposure of the new title sponsor logo seemed to be an issue. Monster invoked contractual clauses and it looks like the logo remained where it was.

The Revs Your Heart slogan from the early livery was also relocated and the fragmented trademark swoosh made it on the midship side panels. Oh, and the Pata logo is not present on Rossi’s bike, but only on his leathers. You can also enjoy a message from Yamaha’s President Yanagi-san, then feast your eyes on the Iwata MotoGP prototype picture galore. You know the drill: red 99 for Jorge Lorenzo, neon yellow 46 for Valentino Rossi.
