The Janus Halcyon 250 is a new motorcycle with classic style from America’s heartland, made by a small team of passionate builders.
It is a lightweight, controllable, simple, motorcycle. It’s powered appropriately for what motorcycles are best at—joy rides through country roads, late-night zips through the city, accelerating out of a turn, riding free. It’s size and power make it a perfect first motorcycle for new riders and a welcome return to a simple sense of speed for even the most seasoned of riders.
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.
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.
