cafè-racer style • grand-prix inspiration
The Phoenix 250 is no replica, but its design is inspired by the some of the best in motorcycling history. Starting with the classic featherbed frame, the Phoenix eschews extra plastic and bodywork while taking classic styling cues from the british cafe racer tradition and the Grand Prix bikes of the 50’s and 60’s. Our builders’ touch is noticeable throughout, from the hand-formed aluminum tank, to the hand-bent and welded frame, to the pinstripes.
Understated, vintage, classic… call it what you will, the Phoenix 250 has one-of-a-kind style.
Appropriate power for commuting, city riding, joy rides, and cafe racing
Small, lightweight motorcycles have distinct advantages over the over-powered, unwieldy, and large motorcycles that are so popular today. The Phoenix weighs 265 pounds, has a full proprietary suspension, heavy steel construction, and nothing superfluous. Our single-cylinder 229cc motor provides the get-up-and-go the nimble Phoenix needs, provides excellent fuel efficiency, and gives riders the pleasure of riding their motorcycle at or near it’s maximum power every day, without risking life or limb. Modern disc brakes and stainless brake lines provide incredible stopping power.
The result is a perfect pairing of size and power that gives riders exactly what they need for the kind of riding they love most.
You don’t need loud pipes to turn heads with the Phoenix 250. The Phoenix 250 is built by our small team of builders and craftsmen in America’s heartland, one-at-a-time, to your specification, in small batches. We’ve built our business around keeping the human element in each motorcycle, merging the best of custom building with modern manufacturing. The result is a motorcycle that avoids the quirks and pitfalls of custom one-offs, but retains its one-of-a-kind soul in a market of one-of-a-million machines.
Heart and soul are built into every Phoenix 250 in our exclusive, small-batch, hands-on process.
