Yamaha is showcasing an array of bikes that preview their newest developments in electric vehicle technology and of course, good ol' gas-powered motorbikes. One of the big highlights is their PES2 Concept, an electric superbike that uses their "Yamaha Smart Power Module" that sits inside a monocoque structure that doubles as the bike's frame and features an additional electric motor inside the hub of the front wheel for added performance.  Other models of note include an off-road EV model that you can view in the gallery below and a sleek lighweight sport bike that has a cafe racer design complete with wooden panels and woodgrain detailing.
