One prototype in 2 stages of completion with Derbi 50 engines, 3 pics of work being done, a $500 website, and BAAAM....Janus Motorcycles is born.

Cool idea, but should have gone with a 4 stroke in today's market.

Promo video is not even the same bike, lol. It's an older air cooled single speed bike...looks italian.

Another cool 50cc you could easily ut in production with a 50 motor (easily bumped to a 55 MPH 125 Lifan motor).

It does have italian forks. I kind of like a 50cc two stroke, I guess cause I grew up with those the smell of castor oil I can still recall.
That looks good. Would not mind one of those.

It better have a quickshifter and traction control or he won't know how to ride it.

I love two strokes! When they bring out a 250 twin with expansion chambers, give me a call. Given that, one of my dream bikes is a Kawa Mach III.
