Post Sale Update: After being relisted several times, this Christini 450 AWD eventually sold for $5,100
The Christini 450 AWD has a special mechanical system that enables both wheels to be driven by the engine, with a series of chains and shafts that power the front wheel in addition to the rear. Check out the technological details here on the Christini website.
The slickest thing about this bike, is of course how the front wheel is driven. The system is entirely enclosed within the head tube and frame, and is so efficient that it results in less than a 1% power loss. The system’s weight is less than 15 pounds. The extra grip is tremendous and brings a whole new level of enjoyment to serious dual sporting. The only catch, is probably the Chinese-built engine based on a Honda 450. While final assembly is done in Philadelphia, the relatively low MSRP is possible due in part to the reduced costs of sourcing engines from China.
This specific Christini 450 is in excellent condition, having only covered 40 miles. It is the personal bike of a former motorcycle dealer – take that as you will. It seems to be completely stock, and with such few miles on it, it might as well be new.
