Yamaha’s new Majesty S 125cc scooter

Tall screen, lots of luggage space and decent power from new luxury 125 scoot

YAMAHA UK has added a new scooter to its line-up, a 125cc Majesty, the name used previously by the firm for a family of comfy, sensible scoots.

The new Majesty S has a tall screen, a glovebox, a hook for shopping bags and space for a full-face helmet under the seat, according to a release from Yamaha.

It’s got 13-inch wheels, large footboards and a stepped dual seat for a relaxed riding position, the firm says.

The engine comes from the Xenter 125 and makes a healthy 11.9hp through the CVT transmission.

Price is to be confirmed.

Yamaha’s release included: ‘One of the main chassis aspects sure to be appreciated by commuters is the large, flat footboard area and stepped dual seat that give a natural and relaxed riding position, and also allow for easy leg access to the ground - making the Majesty S ideally suited to the typical "stop-start" nature of urban riding. An automatic seat opening device gives quick access to the storage compartment, and passenger comfort is assured thanks to the fold out footrests as well as the plush stepped dual seat and grab bars…

'A number of spacious storage compartments underline the Majesty S's focus on day-to-day practicality. Under the stepped dual seat there's space for a single full-face helmet plus other small items, and in front of the rider there's a large inner box that can easily accommodate a 500cc drink bottle. Up front there is also a convenience hook that is designed to carry small bags, and Yamaha offer a number of optional top cases for those owners who wish to carry larger loads.’
