There are motorcycle burnouts, and there are two-wheel-drive motorcycle burnouts – the latter of which don't happen too often. All-wheel-drive motorcycle maker Christini also makes frame kits to convert certain KTM and Honda motorcycles into two-wheel-drive monsters, and this converted Austrian adventure bike could be the first motorcycle to perform a two-wheel-drive burnout - or at least the first one captured on video.

Regardless of whether it's the first or not, the video of the burnout (which you can watch below) is thoroughly entertaining. If you're interested in what it took to convert the motorcycle to AWD and the engineer's drowned-out explanation leaves you scratching your head, head on over to the forum that documented the build.

      Cheater. Do it without the chains and then I'd be impressed ;) This is pretty cool. I wonder how much weight it adds?

      2-wheel drive motorcycles. The answer to the question nobody asked.

          I can't claim I know alot about motorcycles but wouldn't it also give better inline stability because of the pulling motion of the front wheel? That to me seems like it could be a big bonus when accelerating.

      Eh, I don't get the investment in two wheel drive motorcycles. Keep it light with knobbies and you can tackle just about anything. What I would like to see though are more leaning trikes, perhaps even a AWD one, as with an electronic throttle and sophisticated computer you could get some crazy stability out of it when you are dealing with three points of contact. With only two, not so much.

      When I was a kid, some company came out with a 2wd BMX bike that was supposed to start dominating the racing scene. I'm guessing that never happened, but I've been mildly intrigued by the notion of 2wd bikes/motorcycles since then. Would be fun to play with.
