Yamaha took the wraps off the its new 2020 Majesty 155. The Majesty S revives the name of a 400cc maxi-scooter once offered by Yamaha between 2004-2010. The Japan-only (for now) model boasts of sleeker styling in stark contrast to Yamaha’s two other angular 150cc offerings: the Nmax and Aerox. The new Majesty is more accessible, retaining the sleek maxi-scoot styling but in the more popular 150cc segment.
Powering the Majesty S is the same single-cylinder power plant fitted to the NMax. It’s a 155cc Blue Core engine that produces 15-PS at 7,500 rpm and 14-Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm. This should allow it to attain average fuel consumption of 47 km/L. It should however have a longer range compared to the Nmax thanks to a 7.4-liter tank.
Bringing it to a stop is a large 267 mm front disc and another disc in the rear. Currently, it is not offered with ABS in the Japanese market.
It’s held aloft by telescopic forks in front with a mono-shock setup in the rear which should produce a more comfortable ride. It rolls on 13-inch wheels, fitted with 120/70 tires in front and 130/70 at the back. This results in a relatively tall seat height of 795 mm. Finally, the Majesty S tips the scales at 145 kg.
The Majesty has some fairly unique features to offer. For one, it has a front shield-mounted fuel tank, similar to the newly launched Mio Gravis. It also has a power outlet just above the front pocket to conveniently store the phone.
Its instrument cluster has a fairly unique layout, with a rev-counter at the top, fuel gauge on the lower left, and fully digital speedometer on the right. Finally, its underseat storage can also accommodate a full-face helmet.
Yamaha has plans to offer the Majesty S in Europe as well, however plans aren’t quite certain yet owing to the current situation. In Europe it may be offered in 125cc and possibly with ABS. There’s no word yet if this will be offered in Southeast Asia. However, with 125cc and 155cc engine options, there’s a lot of options for Yamaha Philippines to find a place for it in its lineup.
