Janus Motorcycles has gone and entered themselves into a ‘Coolest Thing Made in Indiana’ tournament sponsored by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce – and the next few days will determine the finalists.
The report from ElkhartTruth states that the tournament is currently in its 16th round, with the finals being determined by Valentines Day, February 14th, in less than a month.
We’ve been keeping a weather eye out for this brand for a while now. Slotted in the niche that is classic motorcycle builds, Janus Motorcycles aims to create “simple, beautiful machines that are a joy to ride,” with their two current beasties – the Halcyon 250 & Halcyon 450 as well as the Gryffin 250 – booked up and pre-ordered to the nines.
“We draw on the Northern Indiana spirit of manufacturing to create hand-built, personal, unique, and relatable products, utilizing our global marketplace to source reliable, tried-and-true components,” states the company on the competition website.
“We build to order and sell directly to our riders in all 50 states, cultivating a connection with each and every owner.”
With their company being the only one on a list of many for the ‘Coolest Thing Made in Indiana’ tournament, be sure to vote online before the deadline is up.

Looking to demo one of their stylish scoots? Janus now apparently has a ‘demoship’ where you can swing a leg over and give one of their machines a ride.
