Japan has received a new 155 cc maxi-scooter - the Yamaha Majesty S. It's way more powerful than the Aprilia 160 SXR that will be launched in India this August.
Yamaha Majesty S Features and Design
One of the key features of the Yamaha Majesty S is its design. Yamaha has done a brilliant job in making this scooter look very sporty. The Majesty S features a stylish apron-mounted LED headlight that has a projector for the high beam and conventional reflector for the low beam. A couple of LED DRL strips are also present. The side turn signals are located on either side of the headlight.
The profile of the Majesty S is quite attractive thanks to the design of the seat that gives an impression of a high-rise tail. Also, the alloy wheels and the blacked-out side-mounted exhaust help in maintaining the scooter’s visual appeal. At the rear of the Yamaha Majesty S, there is a sporty LED taillight, side turn signals and pillion grab rail.
The Majesty S also comes with a sporty three-pod semi-digital instrument cluster. The tachometer is in the middle. The tell-tale lights along with the fuel meter are on the left. And on the right side, there is a display that shows information like speedometer, trip meter, clock, etc.
Some of the other interesting features of the Yamaha Majesty S are:
- Large under-seat storage space
- 12V DC socket in the front apron
- High-quality aluminium hook
- Spacious front pocket - can hold a 500ml water bottle
- Front fuel filler cap
- Dual disc brakes - 267 mm front, 245 mm rear
Yamaha Majesty S Specifications

It has been tuned to produce 11 kW or 15 PS of maximum power and 14 Nm of peak torque. Yamaha claims that this engine is capable of returning a fuel economy of 40 km/l.

It is available in four colour options - Silky White, Metallic Grey, Metallic Black, and Vivid Yellow. The Majesty S will reach the showrooms on 10 April 2020, if the ongoing COVID-19 situation permits.
As for the Indian market, the Yamaha Majesty S checks off almost all the boxes - looks, practicality, performance, etc. But the price is too high for a high-volume scooter in India. So, the Majesty S would be a viable option only if Yamaha can manage to lower down the price.
