Very pleased with the machine! I gave about £400 for mine with 12,000miles on it, Very well built. There is a few Gotcha's like to change the water have to take the front fairing off! otherwise all is good. The handlebars on this model could do with being slightly longer. Takes a little getting used to! Suspension very good on this model cant complain. Very Good machine otherwise (read more)

I got my majesty second hand from a "family friend". It had less than 1000 miles on it and was mint condition. I got it for £350 so no complaints there! Its my first scooter, and I'd say its a bit big and heavy for a first bike, however, beggers can't be choosers. In terms of looks, its quite old-school. Ride comfort is excelent, but the small wheels are worrying on uneven roads. Fuel consumption excelent - £10 for a full tank and lasts ages. Acceleration is very good, and Its quite... (read more)

Not for kids.
Its name precisely describes the style of riding it represents. Majesties should be owned by sedate, staid citizens like myself; they suit well both with an elegant outfit or a casual style but they are always calm, and a bit too circumspect while pulling up.
On the other hand, how comfortable, stylish and reliable they are, it's worthless to write; one'd use up three more paragraphs yet wouldn't get to the gist (read more)

Yamaha Majesty 125cc Scooter
I was very luckky, I spotted this very low mileage (425 miles TOTAL..on a 2002 )...going in my local breakers in Chorley...for £1295 !!!!!...Genuine mileage, one lady owner...never used it!!!!....Absolutely MINT condition...stored in Garage.)
Doesn't look like a 125, looks more like a bike.
...Anyway...4 weeks....1000 miles later,....Very reliable (Unless you put Diesel into the Tank...yes i did!(Drained the tank,refilled it, took the air filter off, and... (read more)

Okay,it's not the most stylish of scooters I admit.
That said, it is reliable, quick, easy to maintain and more importantly it is a comfy ride (I'm 6'4" tall). I use it to travel 10 miles through London on a daily basis and she does a good job. I get about 150 miles for every £12 of fuel @ £1.25 a litre. You can't complain!
Top speed is 72mph and acceleration is enough to pull you away from traffic at the lights.
The only drawback is that at slow speeds the clutch can jump and balance... (read more)

Yamaha Majesty 125 is a revalation, purchased in Spain therefore I can ride it on the motorways and with a pillion passenger anywhere, on a full european driving licence.
plenty of power for what we require, and can be used by myself or my wife, that is one of the primary reasons for choosing this machine.
This is our first foray into 2 wheeled powered transport because, where we live, the weather is too hot in summer for cycling, and motoring does not allow the "freedom" of fresh air.
I... (read more)

Commutes 30 miles a day effortlessly, hits 70 mph on motorways (and I'm 18 stone!) and will still do over 65mph two up! Looks smart and carves through the traffic like a hot knife through butter. I have had two "hairy biker" types ask if they could have a go after passing them in heavy traffic. They chased me for 8 miles before they caught me up. Very nicely put together and economic to run. I really cannot think of much to say against this bike. (read more)

I got a good deal on this Yamaha Majesty 125 scooter - also sold as the MBK Skyliner - and it was worth every penny. It was totally reliable, good brakes and cheap to run. No problem in recommending the Majesty as a first bike, even if the styling is looking a little dated now. (read more)
