A sneak peak of Rossi's Yamaha

ONE day before the start of the official MotoGP test in Sepang, seven-time world champion Valentino Rossi's 2013 Yamaha YZR-M1 has been revealed. 

Oddly, the pictures were leaked via the Twitter account @YamahaYellow46, the bike's very 'own'.

The pictures reveal that the bike will be wear silver and black livery similar to that of the bike Rossi rode during testing in late 2012. The big change is that the Yamaha M1 now bears Monster's logo following the agreement of a sponsorship deal for 2013.

Testing begins tomorrow (February 5th) and lasts three days - fans will be eagerly anticipating Rossi's performance alongside team mate Jorge Lorenzo as a benchmark for the coming season.
