Yamaha Majesty Motor Scooter Guide

21 Feb 2015 | Author: | Comments Off on Yamaha Majesty Motor Scooter Guide


Yamaha’s Majesty is a good performing midsized maxiscoot with a highway capable top speed. First introduced for the 2005 model year, the Majesty remains on sale as in both the USA and Canada. The end looked to be near when the Majesty didn’t make the American 2011 lineup, but this capable scooter was brought back for 2012 and remains on sale as of 2014.

In Canada, the Majesty never left so it is now in its 10th year of sales.


In the engine compartment, the Majesty uses a fuel injected 395cc liquid-cooled 4-stroke, 4-valve, DOHC single cylinder engine. This engine cranks 33.5 HP which is good for an awesome 105mph and a respectable 50-55mpg. That’s impressive considering many 250cc scoots achieve similar milage out of their less powerful engines.

300-500cc is a great size for a maxi-scooter engine because it delivers ample power for highway travel, while still retaining great fuel milage. For comparison, Honda’s 580cc Silverwing only attains 40mpg, which is a pretty

significant difference on long trips. Given the 100mph+ top speed of the Majesty, it might not make sense to shell out thousands more for a 600cc scooter unless you’re particularly power hungry.

Design and Amenities

The Majesty can swallow up to 16 gallons of stuff in its underseat storage area. That’s one more gallon that Honda’s Silverwing holds. You can fit your helmet, knapsack and more in this area all at once. The Majesty can also store a nice amount of smaller items in its two (one large and one small) dash compartments.

The Majesty has great instrumentation including a fuel gauge, coolant temp gauge, ambient temp gauge and indicator lights for the V-belt and oil.

Back in 2005 the Majesty went on sale for around six grand with the MSRP rising gradually to $6850 by 2014. At this pricepoint, the Majesty is priced well for its size, but did/does cost the same as some larger scooters from Kymco and Piaggio – namely the Xciting 500 and X9 500 respectively. For its part, the Majesty offered an impressive level of refinement that out shined some of its displacement endowed peers.

If you’re in the market for a highway capable maxi-scoot, this one makes a lot of sense as you can often find good deals on lightly used examples. The Majesty can easily cruise at highway speeds unlike most 250cc maxi-scoots and the Majesty boasts better milage than the bigger 500-650cc maxi-scoots. The most direct competitors are Kymco’s Xciting 500 and Downtown 300i.

Suzuki’s Burgman 400. Yamaha’s 495cc TMAX and Piaggio’s 460cc X9.
