Customer Reviews

Read some of our customers' experiences riding and owning a Janus Motorcycle!

Outstanding company! I love the Halcyon I ordered, they make an excellent product! The staff go out of their way to make the experience unforgettable! I highly recommend to anyone thinking about purchasing a motorcycle.
— Ryan P.
Incredible Motorcycle Company.  American manufacturing pride at it’s best.  Devin and Richard are taking small displacement bikes to a whole new level.  If you want to get back to the basics and fun of motorcycling, jump on a Janus.
— Gary
Brilliant concept! A machine that, in styling, mimics historical motorcycles, yet flawlessly blends modern safety features into the design. Well done Janus!
— Steve S.
Just what’s needed, no Less, no More! Style, Ergonomics, Efficiency, back to the basics.
— Antonio
The service was pleasant, complete and 100% professional. Looking forward to watching you grow.

Best group to work with! I picked up my bike this August! If you haven’t ordered your bike yet, don’t wait.
— Ryan B.

"Getting to chat with everyone at Janus and test ride their products was amazing, especially after seeing the way they pour their hearts and souls into their work...This kind of spirit of customer service and entrepreneurial passion is awesome, and they bring it to life with surprising power, just like their bikes (which have a surprising amount of acceleration, by the way). You will not be disappointed!"
- Michael

"I went to their first Discovery Day and was sold on not only the bikes but also Janus and the people working there too. Their enthusiasm really shows. A couple of months later I ordered a Halcyon...This bike is really fun to ride and never fails to draw attention. One other thing, Devin, Richard and the rest of the crew at Janus are always helpful if you have any questions." -David

“I rode in the sun and the rain...and through it all, the Halcyon 250 did great! Everyone I met had questions and compliments about the bike.”
— Brandon • Halcyon #13
The bike performs flawlessly and I have to say I get more attention on this thing than any car, bike or scooter I’ve ever ridden.
— Christian • Phoenix #10
