If you want to enter in the world of dirt bikes using a less intimidating model, then you should take a closer look at Christini’s AWD 250.
This compact motorcycle is fairly easy to handle and is able to deal effortless with any type of track thanks to its innovative AWD system that can’t be found at many bikes in this class.
Besides, the AWD system, the motorcycle is also fitted with a high revving GasGas 250 cc, liquid-cooled 2-Stroke, single cylinder engine. The unit breaths through a Keihin PWK 38mm carburetor and transfers its power to the wheels through a six speed transmission.
Other features worthy of being mentioned include Marzocchi forks, a Fox RC2 shock and a FMF exhaust system. You also get a modern aluminum frame which offers a perfect compromise between lightness and rigidity.
The standard model is offered with a base price of $8895, while the E-Start version can be yours for no less than $9495*.
