PHILADELPHIA, Pa. – Christini AWD Motorcycles has updated five models for its 2014 line, including the AWD 450E, AWD 450DS, AWD 450SM, AWD250 and AWD300.

The All Wheel Drive manufacturer is also seeking existing motorcycle dealers throughout the U.S. to carry the Christini brand.

The four-stroke AWD 450E ($7,995) and AWD 450DS ($8,495) have both been upgraded with fuel injection. While the AWD 450E is offroad only, both the AWD450 DS and the AWD 450SM ($8,995) are street legal in 49 states.

The dual-sport AWD 450DS comes with DOT-approved knobby tires, while the supermoto AWD 450SM has traditional DOT tires.

Returning two-stroke models for 2014 include Christini’s AWD 250 ($8,895) and AWD 300 ($8,995). Both models now come standard with Nissin brakes. They each have a GasGas motor with a Keihin PWK carburetor, an FMF Gnarly exhaust and an FMF Q Stealth silencer.

Marzocchi front forks and a Fox Podium RC2 rear shock take care of the suspension.

Christini is offering a year-end incentive for motorcycle industry employees: all AWD 300 models are $1,000 off retail when the buyer provides proof of employment with a motorcycle company or shop.
