Yamaha Majesty 400 Super Review

Just before for a Biker’s Rock Night

The Yamaha Majesty 400 Maxi is probably the best bike ever had.  It’s my 3rd Scooter and my fifth bike to  My first bike in 1995 was a 125cc scooter and in those that was one of the largest sizes of you could get for a scooter.  It sadly away in a head on collision on holiday in Berwick upon

 In 2004 I managed to save up for my big bike – the Honda Deauville – this bike taught me a lesson in what bike not to  I’ 5’4″ and I often would this bike due to its immense 228  I traded it in for a Yamaha Xmax Scooter which was very weight however it was not quite to get me up to speed on the motorways.

 I progressed a Yamaha XJ6 600cc inline cylinder … street bike which was powerful and light weight, but didn’t it’s dirty oily drive palatable or like the that I had problems with the on this bike.

So I decided in of 2012 that I needed a new which was fully automatic no gears, a bike that was not too to manoeuvre, a bike that keep me dry in the wettest Scottish weather possible, and did not have any oily exposed parts. answer was to purchase a modern scooter.

I spent weeks different machines – I got the brochures out all over the coffee table – I up on their specifications and features, it almost a pleasurable form of  I looked into the new ‘Hybrid’ which are scooters that to be motorcycles but none of them to me as these bikes have of the motorcycle which I wanted to get from.

I narrowed my search down to two models – the Suzuki Burgmann 400 and the Majesty 400.  The MJ was more by £700 and I opted to pay the extra due to loyalty and also I liked the features of this machine.

The has a different design from motorcycles

The MJ has a very different from a conventional motorcycle means that someone of my can manoeuvre this machine ease.  All the weight of bike is low down – the fuel and the engine are all underneath the rider’s  The wheels are smaller that of a motorcycle which keep the seat height

 I found that I could get bike on and off  it’s centre with relative ease.

I the excitement of riding this off from the dealership on the first  I was aware that the controls of machine are different to that of a motorcycle.  I had to remember that the hand lever was a brake and not a and that my feet did not have to to change gear.

 I found it odd when I came to the end of my journey, all I to do was turn off the ignition key. the first few trips I’d have to for a few moments as my left hand automatically want to pull the and my left foot automatically to change the gear foot to neutral.

The advantage of a fully automatic are evident when riding in – you are constantly starting and stopping at lights and junctions so it was a pleasure not to to constantly painfully pull on a lever at every stop, as I have with previous motorcycles.  The MJ has no gears at this bike uses Variable Transmission.  The design for CVT was sketched by Leonardo Da in the 14th Century.

 The thing to be aware of is that CVT it’s easy to not realise how fast you’re going so necessary to constantly check the   Because there are no gear I find that I can pull from a total stand fast, if I need to.  So the MJ is a twist’n Go which helps you concentrate on the road with less to think about.


Suede Sandals remain 50% dry in rain weather proofing

Inevitably, living in Scotland, I experience riding in the rain on the MJ.  I so far been very impressed the weather protection of this  I  did a test one weekend the rain was so heavy that no in their right mind go for a spin.  I decided for fun to ride Edinburgh’s Granton harbour to beach in extremely heavy wearing sandals to see how wet my feet get.  I found that sandals were 50% dry at the end of the trip.

 I have now found that if I better quality waterproofs and gloves, I can travel on the MJ in the heaviest and I will get to my destination completely

The MJ is the most practical machine ever known.  I bought my MJ for and pleasure.  Very often I to attend business networking and have meetings with and I have to look professional.  I can now up to events in full suit and tie and no one ever know that I had in bad weather on two wheels.  I can open up the and store a laptop and large briefcase.

 At the end of my journey into I can store two full face my waterproofs, gloves and scarf in the boot.  Due to the weather of this bike, I can arrive at meetings completely dry no matter how the rain has been, with no oil stains on my trousers.

For Video or shoots in town, I can place my bag in the boot or alternatively in the top box.  I can my Tripod bag to the hand rails on the  I’ve even travelled on the MJ to weddings.

The MJ is great for  taking trips at the weekends on the A roads. not designed  for long on motorways and it’s not the bike for out with groups of bikers who sports bikes.  However, I to my surprise that more of my friends have expressed in going for bike rides on the MJ.  It has a comfy passenger seat and the does not look aggressive and I that’s why it appeals more to

 Even my mother couldn’t having a seat on it – I had never that before with my bikes.  I have taken for short bike rides and I get pleasure from letting person share the experience on a motorcycle.

The Majesty’s foot can be used as mini tables

I take a compact camera me on my bike rides and add them to my motorcycle diary albums. often I like to ride the MJ to the coast at Crammond and take  I usually always bring a and sandwiches and discovered that I use the foot rests as a mini which is very handy – as the bike’s fairing stops from blowing away in the

First Camping Trip on the

My first camping trip on the MJ was a event in October 2012.  I had a short distance out of Edinburgh to Pathhead in Mid Lothian to photograph a Rock Night.  I was able to all my camping gear in the top box and  boot, and the rest onto the back

 I enjoyed not having to carry a rucksack with camping as I had to previously with the XJ6.   I had a shoot, and managed to get a sleep ice on the inside of my tent.  After my own tea on the portable stove, I enjoyed a down to the Scottish borders to a friend.

  This bike handles the and turns of the country roads although due to the design of this you ride in a sitting position feet forward which that cornering requires a more concentration.  I found the MJ powers up the Scottish hills as well as my XJ6 600cc machine  I also managed to do an emergency easily at 60mph when 3 decided to walk in single on the road in front of me.

In my humble this bike is perfect – is nothing about it I would as it’s so practical – however, be to spend over two hours week cleaning it.  It has many panels and they all get covered in filth on the outside and underneath in the where the back wheel   The brake pads also a lot of what is called brake which is very very if it gets on your skin.

  cleaning isn’t generally a as most bikers enjoy their bike – for me it’s a form of meditation that I practising.  I like to polish the seats and windscreen meticulously.   I get satisfaction from seeing my gleaming after it’s through 4 consecutive days of  like rains.

The MJ has a 14 litre so when full, you can expect to get  130 miles until the warning indicator starts  I usually find that I to remove my helmet so that I can down to the fuel cap which is awkward to access compared to motorcycles that have the as high as the handlebars.

The Majesty is the perfect commuter for Trips at the weekend

The Yamaha 400 is the perfect machine for commuting to in town and for doing your shop.  It will take you and a away on short weekend trips in all weathers.  It is the ideal for business people who prefer to into town on two wheels and look fresh on arrival.

bike is easy to control, the display is large and clear. Majesty has been developed the last 8 years and is completely and reliable.  At £6400 this is a value for money super that will give the many happy years of on two wheels  in comfort.
