The Yamaha Majesty S maxi-scooter has just been revealed. The scooter will initially be sold in the Japanese market and at a later stage make its way to the European and possibly even Indian market. The Yamaha Majesty S has been launched in the Japanese market at a starting price of 3,45,000 Yen (Rs 2.38 lakh).
It is a modern, stylish scooter with a European design language. Up front, is a large apron with an air intake in the centre. Beneath it is an LED headlamp with integrated LED DRLs. The sporty fairing continues down the sides and meets the slim and sharp body at the rear.
The scooter also features a stubby exhaust end-can and sporty split grab rails. The alloy wheels look brilliant and set it apart from other scooters in the segment. At the rear is an LED tail lamp with integrated turn signal indicators. The Yamaha Majesty S features an analogue-digital instrument cluster.
The rev-counter and fuel gauges are analogue while an LCD screen handles the speedometer, odometer, trip meters, etc. The instrument cluster also has tell-tale indicators for turn signals, high-beam, engine check light, etc. It also comes with a 12V DC charger in the front pocket to charge your phone.
The Yamaha Majesty S is powered by a liquid-cooled, 155cc, single-cylinder engine with a maximum power output of 15bhp and a peak torque output of 14Nm. It boasts of a claimed fuel efficiency figure of 40km/l. However, fuel-efficiency is not something that buyers of this scooter would be too keen on. They want performance and this scooter offers loads of it.
Deliveries are expected to start in Japan by 10 April, 2020. However, given the situation, we’re not too sure that is possible. The scooter market in India has rapidly evolved over the last few years and a small chunk of buyers are out there looking for more powerful and super-stylish scooters.
Hence, it makes sense for Yamaha to target such buyers. At this moment though, there is no information if the Yamaha Majesty S will be launched in India. If it is launched though, Yamaha will have the perfect product to go against the Aprilia SXR 160, Vespa Elegante 149 and to an extent, even the Aprilia SR 150.
