What makes a janus motorcycle different?
classic, time-tested style
The Halcyon 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 Halcyon eschews extra plastic and bodywork while taking classic styling cues from the early American and British traditions and board-track racers. 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 Halcyon 250 has one-of-a-kind style.
appropriate POWER for the job
Small, lightweight motorcycles have distinct advantages over the over-powered, unwieldy, and large motorcycles that are so popular today. The Halcyon weighs 245 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 Halcyon 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.
