Christini 450DS

If you are looking for something completely different in the dual-sport world, the DOT-legal Christini AWD 450DS certainly fits the bill.

Having ridden the off-road version of this groundbreaking all-wheel-drive motorcycle, we can assure you that AWD is not a gimmick.

It is a highly practical feature that allows riders to easily climb hills that a traditional single-wheel-drive bike cannot go. Also, it rails in corners like nothing else. Front suspension is by Marzocchi, while Fast Ace takes care of the rear.
