But I read that the bike is yet to be released and that it will be a limited edition production run.

I may be wrong.

Interesting. I wonder if the hydraulic motor will be suitable for an all wheel drive car.

No you are not wrong, Production version of the 2-Trac system bike is yet to be released but this has already been used in many competitive races and Enduro championships. To have a glimpse of 2TRAC's history read

That's true dude. YAMAHA did employ 2-wheel drive and the 450 WR - 2WD was ridden by David Fretigne.

Hydraulic motors have swash plate wearing issues and oil leak, if not made well, but on the good side its a gearless system. There are a lot of videos on YouTube on hydraulic drive system for motorcycles. Its application on snow is unparalled. The electric motorcycle scene has exploited the dual hub motor concept. Electric mountain bikes with dual hub motors attain insane speeds!
