Riding a motorcycle need not be all about performance. There is always a place in the market for bikes that offer a highly utilitarian purpose without having any of the all-world capabilities. That’s the group where the Yamaha Majesty fits in. As a cross between a scooter and a motorcycle, the Majesty is a rugged and reliable machine that provides enough power to run at highway speeds while also boasting of enough room for two to go with ample storage space.
The Majesty comes with an aluminum, die-cast alloy main frame with a steel tube sub frame that’s both light and rigid, offering the kind of increased performance and handling that makes for an all-world scooter. The full instrumentation fitted just in front of the scooter comes with all the pertinent information a rider needs in his travels. That includes an analog speedometer and tachometer, and an LCD multifunction display that includes a fuel gauge, coolant temperature gauge, ambient temperature gauge, plus V-belt, and oil indicator lights.
Make no mistake, the Majesty isn’t the cup of tea for performance-minded individuals. It "only" has a 395cc liquid-cooled four-stroke engine with a fully automatic transmission. The bike features an electronic fuel injection system that delivers superb throttle response and low-maintenance reliability, while the dual chamber air box, air injection system, and exhaust catalyst technology reduce air pollution.
All told, the Yamaha Majesty passes all the requisites of a top-end scooter. The size, handling, and performance numbers of the Majesty allow it to be the kind of ride that every scooter-riding savant craves.
