Small Shop Craftsmanship

Hand-built with precision and care

Take flight and experience the pure exhilaration behind the Halcyon 250cc motorcycle. We’ve built our business around keeping the intrinsic human element in each motorcycle, a marriage between the best of custom building and modern manufacturing. The result is a motorcycle that avoids the quirks and pitfalls of custom one-offs, but retains its singularity and unmatched detail.

Classic Design

Inspired by the best motorcycling in history

Classically styled, the Halcyon 250cc motorcycle is no replica, but its design is inspired by some of the best in motorcycling history. Starting with the classic featherbed frame, the Halcyon highlights a classic approach to a pared-down design and hearkens the golden age of motoring with cues of form and function from brands such as Zenith, Brough-Superior and Indians among other marks in motorcycle history.

Properly Powered

Perfect pairing of size and power

Small, lightweight motorcycles have distinct advantages over the overpowered, unwieldy, and large motorcycles that are so popular today. The Halcyon weighs 265 pounds, and our single-cylinder 229cc motor provides the get-up-and-go the classically-styled Halcyon needs. The result is a perfect pairing of size and power that gives riders the unequivocal experience of taking flight.

I love everything about Janus motorcycles. Their story, the simplicity, the look. I went down there and I was blown away how cool and fun they are. Their HQ is very inviting and has a good ambiance. and their employees are very helpful. Some motorcycle dealers just want to sell you a bike but the good people at Janus want you to have an amazing experience and you can tell that they love their motorcycles and really believe in what their motorcycles are made for. Which is crusing around town and enjoying the ride. My guy Mitch that works down there is really good guy and and always has a smile on his face, and loves to talk about their bikes when I come down. I'm super excited and can't wait to get my own. Also, I test rode a few and I had a blast. Thanks Mitch!! I'm excited to do business with you guys soon on the future.

My 2022 halcyon 250 was hugely underpowered and not really comfortable over 45 to 50 mph stock. Fit and finish is fabulous. But now, after a performance kit it is a true 250 and runs at 45 in 4th with headroom and a gear to spare and, I am a happy camper albeit the kit and install makes the bike really stupid expensive.

Fantastic experience today perusing the Janus showroom. Mitch took us through all of the different models and trim and fitment variations as well as a complete tour of the factory / manufacturing facility. A fantastic American made product with incredible attention to detail. Great looking bikes.

Janus is an amazing small company with a beautiful product. I purchased my Halcyon 250 in November and they sent me pictures of its construction in the shop! No other motorcycle manufacturer can compete with that. Their customer service is on point, Sophie responded to all of my emails very quickly and answered every question I had along the way. Lastly, when I went to go pick up my motorcycle, Grant was very friendly and helped me understand how the bike works, showed me around the showroom, and overall a cool dude. Happy to be in the Janus family Halcyon #577
