The Janus Gryffin 250: A Lightweight, Controllable, Simple Motorcycle

Out of America’s heartland, Janus Motorcycles taps into the essence of motorcycling – freedom – while impeccably pairing form and function. Their unique design celebrates the art of the last century of motorcycle design – the co-founders pride themselves on creating bikes that bring a sense of connection between machine and road that isn’t found in modern-day production bikes.

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.

About Janus Motorcycles:

“JANUS MOTORCYCLES WAS FOUNDED ON THE BELIEF…

…that the spirit of motorcycling is best understood on a small, lightweight machine, and that honoring timeless styling cues from motorcycling history isn’t antithetical to modern engineering and performance. Janus Motorcycles provide riders with a more powerful sensation of speed and a more direct connection with both the road and the passing landscape than is possible with many of today’s motorcycle designs.”
