Monster are not the title sponsor for Yamaha Factory Racing, they will be getting the same level of exposure as ENEOS, which basically means a largish logo on the fairing and logos all over the leathers. The team will still be called Yamaha Factory Racing.
Contract is worth about 4 million, apparently, which is about half of what a title sponsorship would cost.
2 million euros could get you top billing on the motoGP champions bike?
