The Military Edition of the Christini AWD Is based on the 450 E model and comes with a series of extra features that make it tougher and more reliable than its other siblings. Thanks to ita tough character the Military Edition is the perfect machinery for various types of military operations and Christini says that is used by the Navy Seals and Special Forces groups overseas.

The motorcycle is powered by a 450cc, liquid-cooled, single cylinder, four stroke engine which transfers its power to the ground by means of a 5 speed wide ratio transmission.

The Christini AWD Military Edition is built on a lightweight twin spar aluminum frame that offers a great torsional and longitudinal rigidity. The frame is combined with a Marzocchi 48mm sealed cartridge forks with Progressive Floating Piston (PFP) adjustment, spring preload/sag, high and low speed compression, rebound and damping adjustability. Pout back there is a fast ace adjustable single shock with linkage.

MCN road tester Trevor Franklin rode the Ohlins two-wheel-drive Yamaha R1 at the Karlskoga track in Sweden and came to the conclusion that: "The 2WD system works brilliantly. There’s no reason why it shouldn’t be fitted to road-going motorcycles."

After the break, you can check out the technical details, see the 2WD system work with the bike on the stands and then on the track with MCN’s tester onboard.

2WD is yet to be used on a large scale in the motorcycle industry, but articles such as the one published in today’s MCN number might just make a difference.
