Wow!!! An AWD bike with a auto clutch and electric start should be like a tank.

A few years back, I was at a Christini demo day. They had a bunch of AWD Honda CRF250R and CRF250X's on hand, 3 woods loops, each progressively harder, and a MX course.

I grabbed an X and headed for the woods. On the easier loop, there was no advantage, maybe even a disadvantage due to the added weight. On the intermediate loop, there was a few technical log crossings and this is where the Christini started to shine. On the AA loop is where the Christini really blew me away (lot of steep and sudden hill climbs). I would have struggled to complete 1 loop on my mono-drive woods bike; I did 2 AA loops on the Christini and was as fresh as a daisy.

The engagement of the front drive was seamless.

The MX guys said that the air born inertia of the front drive unit put it at a disadvantage on the MX track.

The Christini the ultimate steep and snotty day bike. This thing was built for events like Erzberg.
