Christini, a U.S. company known for building all-wheel drive conversion kits for motorcycles, is coming out with its own line of motorcycles.

Two models are currently in the works – a Christini AWD 450 model with a retail price point of $6,895 and a Christini AWD 300 model featuring a Gas Gas 300 engine and other high-end racing components for an estimated retail price point of $8,995. According to Christini, the two new AWD models are priced and configured to compete in the market head-to-head with products offered by the major OEMs. Each unit will be final assembled in the Christini AWD Philadelphia facility with frames and AWD drive system components designed by Christini. Check out specs for both models below the jump.

“We have been planning the launch of our own branded AWD factory models for years and believe the new price points will provide the opportunity for every motorcycle enthusiast to experience the quality and improved benefit of AWD,” says Steve Christini, president of Christini AWD. “We presently sell our custom AWD motorcycles in the US and more than 20 other countries and fully expect the availability of a complete factory Christini AWD model to dramatically increase the market reach.

“Our AWD system is race tested, extremely durable and has been ridden with great success in US and international races over the past 4 years. We look forward with great enthusiasm to the worldwide commercial launch our branded Christini AWD factory products.”
