MotoGp team Tech 3 are ending their 18 year partnership with Yamaha at the end of the new season.
In a statement released on today, Tech 3 did not specify which bikes it will run going forward, but confirmed it has already received an offer it "couldn't say no" to.
Suzuki, KTM and Aprilia are thought to be interested in running a satellite team.
"Tech 3 is a small company, which has to think about the future and has to weigh the different options," team boss Herve Poncharal said.
"We‘ve been offered a deal, that includes something we‘ve been waiting for almost since we started with Tech 3 and I couldn‘t say no.
"But obviously, we are the Monster Yamaha Team until the last lap of the Valencia GP 2018."
Before his team's split with Yamaha was made official, Poncharal said Yamaha had made it clear to him that Valentino Rossi's VR46 team would be preferred as Yamaha's MotoGP satellite outfit.
