American-handmade production motorcycles

 

THE HALCYON 250 honors designs from American motorbiking’s golden age. A lean and long tank design, full-grain saddle seat, leading-link front suspension, and a powerful 250cc single-cylinder engine create a sense of connection with the motorcycle and road not found in any other production motorcycle today. 

Built with the cafè racer in mind, the PHOENIX 250 takes its styling cues from Grand Prix motorcycles of the 50s and 60s. Constructed around the signature Janus “featherbed” chassis, which was inspired by Norton Manxes of the 1950’s, the Phoenix is our take on a more aggressive look with a focus on handling and performance.

What People are Saying

A bike that conjures up the joy of motorcycling isn’t the sharply-aerodynamic, grossly-overpowered modern motorcycle; it’s a bike like the pared-down Halcyon or Phoenix that creates an experience for the rider, an evocation of a simpler time.

Janus came to Union Garage NYC with a handful of bikes - way too much fun was had. We took a quick spin around Redhook...
