Like the Virago I had before this even the simplest routine maintenance is made harder BY DESIGN. You can't get to the rear air stem to check the tire pressure. You have to be careful when checking the oil level not to burn your hand. Getting to the battery is a major project. Adding oil is very difficult. You have to take the front end off (One hour labor if you have it done) to change a headlight bulb. Worst of all are the air filters. Badly located so that they suck up road dirt, both are… Read Full Review

I have a 2006 Yamaha Majesty since 2006 and commute 80 miles to and from work From Walnut Creek to Fremont Calif. I get a consistant 56 to 60 miles per gallon and I ride in Californias HOT lane where I am at a constant 70 mph to 80 mph . The bike is consistant and easy to maintain as it is to drive. I bought a custom made seat throug Corbin and it made it very comfortable and also bought the corbin backrest to go with the leather seats. The Side wind flares from Yamaha work well to keep… Read Full Review

I bought my 2007 Majesty new in Feb 08 as a work commuter. I lived 10 miles from work and the 20 mile roundtrip was a gallon a day in my old Jeep. The Majesty not only saved a considerable amount of gas but is a great and fun ride. The last three years I worked I only used a quarter tank of gas in the Jeep from April to October, that showing how much I used the scooter. Now that I've retired my ride is a fun ride only and I find myself inventing excuses to run errands with the Majesty. I'm… Read Full Review

I have owned four of these machines, found them spelndid for commuting. Daily 50 miles home (Essex) to Central London. have ridden long distance from London to Newcastle, and Liverpool, and Manchester, and Leeds all journeys from London, average mileage 11,000 per anum. Very reliable, service intervals are good 6,000 between servicing, (oil change at 3,000 but no filter change so easy to do yourself). What does require getting used to is the handling, giving up my touring days on my Pan… Read Full Review

I owned one from 2008 to 2011. The acceleration was very poor. It improved a bit on fitting a J Costa variator, but the still sluggish performance made it dangerous joining fast traffic on motorways. A buzz developed on the exhaust heat shield as it loosened, but despite tightening the screws as hard as possible, the screws came out, the shield dropped off and got destroyed by traffic behind me. A replacement cost £160 including fitting. By the time I sold it, the buzzing was back as it… Read Full Review

What a fantastic bike. Fits me like a glove, most comfortable bike I've ever owned. Engine shakes a little at idle, then smooths out with no vibration at cruising speed. Good power, easy to balance, low center of gravity, good wind protection, no engine heat, superb seat, huge underseat storage, great looks, reasonable service schedule, and it's a Yamaha!. Cons: mirrors not positioned well. No airbags. :)… Read Full Review

I bought my Majesty 400 (2004 model)6 weeks ago. At first it was al right, but mile after mile i discovered its weak points. It is not my first scooter so I have something to compare it with. My old Aprilia Atlantic 200cc. The main reason i changed it is the lack of power of that 200cc engine. Sprint to 60mph wasn't bad but it stoped soon after around 70mph (which was annoying). The Majesty can easily do 100mph, but cornering over 70 it feels like a yacht on rough sea even in large motorway… Read Full Review

I'm not one for cliches but the Yahama Majesty 400 is truly King of the Road. I've had it for one year and have just used it in the city and was satisfied going at 50 mpg, weaving in and out of traffic with ease and using it to go to work and back. I am now a quarter of a way through a trip from Scotland - Germany - Poland - Ukraine - Romania - Serbia - Hungary - Germany - Scotland and have not been disappointed. The windy Scottish roads were taken with ease and the german autobahns were… Read Full Review

Bought one new in 2005. 18k on it now and love the bike.
Put another grand into now for new tires, breaks and belt.
Could skip the belt as the old one looked like new, but the manual said change it.
I would have given it a 5 but I think retail on the bike should be about

Love my 2009 Yamaha Majesty. I've put 700 miles on it in less than 2 months. I wanted to ride but didn't want to deal with a clutch while learning. I ride with a someone on a "regular" motorcycle and find I keep up just great. It is a little light for freeway, although it can handle the speed, and if there is some strong wind I feel a little uneasy. On the other hand, it can handle 45 - 55 comfortably, and does great in the city. I forget it is a scooter when riding… Read Full Review

I have had a 2004, a 2006 and a 2008 about to get a 2010. Use it for commuting 50 miles per day into Central London. It's a great communter. Being a Judge's clerk also use it for circuit. Goes to Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds, Newcastle and Nottingham on a regular basis. Only problem is I do 16,000 a year! Put a top box on and heated grips, loads of space, enough clothes for a week away.
never a problem, never failed me even with high mileage. So it is a good all rounder. Just a little… Read Full Review

Itraded up from a 2007 Piaggio BV250. Nice bike but several small and annoying problems. Parts availability was also sketchy. Wanted more performance ans stability at highway speeds. Got it plus Japanese reliability and dealer network. Still breaking it in but the ride is fine. Dialed the rear socks to #2 position, a little soft for some but very comfortable especially in rutty city streets. This 450 lb bike is very nimble and it took like 15 minutes to adjust to the extra 100 pounds. I'm very… Read Full Review

I have owned a 2006 Yamaha Majesty since 2007 and I bought it new with 0.0 miles on it. The only reason I gave it 4 stars for reliability is that I have had to have recall work done on it. Really not a reason to give it 4 stars I know, but hey, had they got it right the first time, they could have gotten 5 stars out of me because it was a pain in the rear to get the work done. It's powerful, smooth and hasn't given me a lick of trouble except for the fuel pump seal recall. It always starts and… Read Full Review

My first bike! My friends thought I was nuts. I bought this bike on the internet. I went off the details and size. The Yahama dealer had ordered it for me.
I LOVE this bike!! The cargo space is great and the bike has alot of power.
I would be a sales rep if I had to get another job. I am not a sports bike person. Handles well. This is the way to go for a first bike!!… Read Full Review

yamaha majesty 400cc. I do not own this bike as yes, I am 45 years young, I currently ride a suzuki hyabusa and prior to that a honda blackbird, but thats serious biking, and to be honest a little too much fuss and a sure licence looser these days, I am considering the majesty 400 becuse I want less fuss, more economical, with enough power to handle the odd motorway stint,and unlike the Busa; I wont mind leaving the majisty out in the rain, I wont feel the need to constantly clean it!!and I feel… Read Full Review

Bought a 5,000 mile 2005 Yamaha Majesty 400 about two months ago with the intention of visiting relatives in Sweden. I live in the UK.
The round trip was just about 2,5000 miles including a bit of sightseeing in Stockholm. The bike was faultless. Never missed a beat, even when thrashed down German Autobahns at 80+mph for hours on end. All my clothes, luggage etc fitted under the seat and in the gloveboxes. And the oil, when checked on my return, was still full and totally clear. If I could… Read Full Review
