Having concluded their title sponsorship deals in recent weeks, Tech 3 Yamaha and Rizla Suzuki are set to reveal their looks for the 2009 MotoGP season during the final test in Spain.

The distinctive blue and yellow of Rizla has become a synonymous with the Suzuki brand over the years, but their involvement in 2009 became doubtful when they withdrew their backing to the British Superbike team and stalled on making a decision about MotoGP.

Nonetheless, seemingly buoyed by Suzuki's impressive pre-season pace, Rizla announced last week that they will continue to back the team into 2009. They are likely to be seen adorning the GSV-R for the first time this year when the bike rolls out in Jerez.

The look of the Tech 3 Yamaha team, meanwhile, remains more of a mystery following the conclusion of their title sponsorship deal with the Monster energy drink brand.

Having competed in yellow and navy blue last season, the increasingly recognisable green 'claw' is likely to make a prominent appearance on James Toseland and Colin Edwards' M1 in 2009.

All will be revealed when the final pre-season test kicks off at Jerez on Wednesday 25th March 2009.
