US-based Christini Motorcycles have launched an all-new model for 2013: the AWD 450 E (Enduro). Christini Motorcycles are constantly reevaluating their technology and range to stay competitive in the market. They have come a long way since they first launched their consumer two-wheel-drive motorcycle back in 2007.
The new AWD 450 E is powered by a 4-stroke, carburetted, single-cylinder engine displacing 450cc which is paired to a wide ratio five-speed transmission. The AWD engagement switch allows it to drive the front and rear wheels when required. The AWD 450 E weighs just 120 kg dry and features top quality components like high-carbon cut stainless steel, waved brake rotors, an aluminium exhaust and Marzocchi 48mm sealed cartridge forks, which are valved and sprung to provide optimal performance for AWD riders.
The Christini AWD 450 E is priced at $7,795 (Rs 4.2 lakh approx).
