CHRISTINI AWD 450

2008 Bike of the Year “Plain and simple, AWD is going to change off-road motorcycles forever. And the applications don’t stop with the dirt bike. Street bikes will benefit in many of the same ways All-Wheel Drive does for high-end cars." Dirt Rider Mag.

Christini Technologies announces the launch of its branded factory line of CHRISTINI AWD off-road motorcycles available for delivery to dealers and customers beginning in the fall of 2011. Two models will be available: A CHRISTINI AWD 450 model with a retail price point of $6895 and a CHRISTINI AWD 300 model featuring a Gas Gas 300 engine and other high-end racing components for an estimated retail price point of $8995. The new CHRISTINI AWD models are priced and configured to compete in the market head-to-head with products offered by the major OEMs. Each unit will be final assembled in the CHRISTINI AWD Philadelphia facility with frames and AWD drive system components designed by CHRISTINI and supplied by established industry manufacturers.

Steve Christini, founder, President and the inventor of the AWD technology, commented “We have been planning the launch of our own branded AWD factory models for years and believe the new price points will provide the opportunity for every motorcycle enthusiast to experience the quality and improved benefit of AWD. We presently sell our custom AWD motorcycles in the US and more than 20 other countries and fully expect the availability of a complete factory CHRISTINI AWD model to dramatically increase the market reach.”

CHRISTINI AWD has been a pioneer in the design and development of AWD for motorcycles producing a product with an established history of commercial and racing success. Previously, CHRISTINI AWD has sold custom AWD models using modified Honda and KTM factory frames. CHRISTINI’s patented AWD motorcycle technology features a durable rigid series of shafts and gears to power the front wheel. The proprietary AWD system is entirely enclosed within the frame and head tube of the motorcycle and is extremely efficient, resulting in less than 1% power loss while adding less than 15 lbs total weight to the motorcycle. Traction and safety in wet and treacherous terrain both on and off road are dramatically improved by AWD enabling a broad range of riders to achieve performance levels far superior to a normal rear wheel drive motorcycle.

“Our AWD system is race tested, extremely durable and has been ridden with great success in US and international races over the past 4 years” explained Steve Christini. “We look forward with great enthusiasm to the worldwide commercial launch our branded CHRISTINI AWD factory products.”
