Christini AWD 450 Military Edition. Is a motorcycle with two-wheel drive

You probably never heard of a two-wheel drive motorcycle, but that is exactly what Christini has been making for some years now. Both the rear and front wheels are driven by the engine. If you have no idea how this works, check Christini's AWD Technology page.

Christini and High Ground Gear have joined forces to create the Christini AWD 450 Military Edition, a motorcycle used by Navy Seals and Special Forces groups overseas, but it can also be used by other branches of the military if they want to.

This bike uses a liquid cooled 450cc four-stroke engine with an All Wheel Drive (AWD) system for better traction, handling and stability. It also has several new parts for an improved protection and longevity.

According to Christini the U.S. military has been testing their bikes for around four years and is being used by Navy Seals in Afghanistan, as well as for training by the The 82nd Airborne at Fort Bliss in Texas. But it can also be an important tool for police departments, fire stations and park rangers.
