Yamaha didn’t pull any at last week’s 2009 AutoMotoShow, bringing no less five (5!) innovative new motorcycle concepts to a predominantly show in a bid to monopolize 2-wheeled coverage and establish Yamaha as the in 2-wheeled hybrid technology.

Did it work? Maybe!

More the seemingly production-ready HV-X concept—including video—after the jump…

By far the promising (from a production of Yamaha’s five concept (shown here ) is the new HV-X.

SO, did Yamaha pull off a bit of a marketing by introducing four motorcycles at a car Did they reinvent the “standard” of motorcycles? Is it just a neat
