Gryffin 250

The Gryffin 250 is a lightweight, controllable, simple motorcycle. It’s powered appropriately for what dual-sport motorcycles are best at—joy rides through the country to your favorite dirt roads and trails, then back home on late-night zips through the city. Its size and power make it a perfect first motorcycle for new riders and a welcome return to simple two-wheeled thrill-seeking for even the most seasoned of riders. The Gryffin is hand-built in the heartland to inspire joy in every rider.
