In the crystal structure of the title mol­ecule, C13H14N4, the two pyridyl rings are not coplanar but twisted about the C—N bond with an inter­planar angle of 71.1 (1)°. In the crystal, the mol­ecules form dimers, situated on crystallographic centres of inversion, which are connected via a pair of N—H⋯N hydrogen bonds. C—H⋯π-electron ring inter­actions are also present in the crystal structure. The title mol­ecule adopts an s–cis–anti–s–cis conformation in the solid state.
