Small Shop Craftsmanship

Hand-built with precision and care

On road or off, the Gryffin 250 is equipped with everything you need for everything in between. The Gryffin 250 is equal parts durable modern componentry and the human creative element, a marriage between the best of custom building and modern manufacturing.

Classic Design

Inspired by the best motorcycling in history

The Gryffin 250 is a distillation of the scrambler ethos, preferring minimalism over heavier extra-bodywork, serviceability over excess technology. With industrial-grade components, thoughtful materials choices, and a classic, utilitarian design, the Gryffin provides a visceral connection between man and machine in every landscape, no matter the conditions.

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 Gryffin weighs 265 pounds, and our single-cylinder 229cc motor provides the ample get-up-and-go. The result is a perfect pairing of size and power that gives riders the confidence and convenience to take the Gryffin where big bikes dare not.

Cant say enough about the bikes they built or the service they provide. It was an absolute pleasure to meet the team and test ride the bikes. We showed up on a random Thursday night when they happend to be hosting a small buisness event. They welcomed us in and gave us the whole tour. Would have drove one home if they didn’t have to hand craft their bikes for their customers. Shoot guess I’ll have to wait for my one off custom order! Lol

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.

We were there for the First Annual Owners community party. It was great to check out the shop. The bikes are great displays of craftsmanship. It is wonderful to have them in the community.

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
