Fascinating! The packaging of the front wheel drive set up sure looks sleek


The only thoughts I have on two wheel drive bikes are the horrible memories of being terrorized trying to control an old Rokon (of unknown to me model)

fing hell that was a beast to try and stay upright on, as a kid.

Looks like it is based on the Odes MCF450.

In the past all of the Christini bike were based on Hondas, but this one looks a little "different", and I'm not sure how it could be with an $8000 price tag. And surely they could've done better than that goofy looking ebay headlight?

Interesting, although the specs are still a bit vague. Anyone know if this is carb'd or EFI? Stator wattage? Would rather have seen a 6sp wide ratio tranny.

At least the military is helping with their initial cash flow.

The bike looks to have been put together with random aftermarket parts (as far as accessories). Vapor, cheesy headlight,the tail light assembly looks like the Edge LED kit hooked to a mx fender with sheet metal screws. No thanks.

Pretty much my impressions as well.

It's like an OCC bike...but for the dirt,

What do you guys expect? It's a 4k bike with a 4k FWD system. And who cares if the street equipment is cheap? It usually 'falls off' after the first ride anyway. This way you'd have $100 worth of parts sitting in a box in the garage instead of $300.

9.8 litre fuel tank on an all wheel drive trail bike? Won't be a great distance between refills.
