Having fun on two wheels doesn’t have to be complicated, it really boils down to grabbing a fist full of throttle and strapping on a smile. Believing in this fundamental spirit of the motorcycle experience, Janus Motorcycles brings affable design and simplistic mechanics in a scrambler package with their Gryffin 250.
As the name implies, the Gryffin is powered by a 229cc single cylinder four-stroke, providing enough umph to shoot across town to your favorite trail network. A leading-link front end has the classic look of an early model bike but gets support from modern set of Ikon shocks that afford great handling through braking and turns for the little bike. Janus assembles their motorcycles to order at their facility in Northern Indiana with a small team of passionate professionals, and have recently received full EPA accreditation for their 250 line, so expect to see a lot more of these fun scrappy scramblers running around a dirt road near you.
