    Sep 8, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Very high quality, great value, excellent performance.
    Cons: Shhhhh.... these things are under-advertised.

    Summary: I bought my new 2006 Yamaha Majesty 400 a couple weeks ago. This is my 1st "scooter" class vehicle. I have owned three 1100 Class Suzuki motorcycles, so I'm not a rookie rider and had high expectations for this machine, based on my research and ... read more

    Pros: Smooth, powerful and quiet !!! Great on gas !!! The best part.. it's FUN !!!
    Cons: needs larger windshield.

    Summary: Last fall I purchased a used 2003 Honda Rebel 250..just to get my feet wet again in the biking world. About 2 weeks ago I decided that the Honda just wasn't what I was looking for..it was noisy and buzzy above 50 mph plus after 25 miles you wanted to ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Comfort, plenty of pep, excellent gas mileage (60+)
    Cons: Tough to clean the lower interior parts of the windshield.

    Summary: Before the Majesty I had a 102 cubic inch modified Road Star Warrior. Nothing in its class could touch it for 0-60 racing. In fact, even the GXRS could not touch in through 1st gear. I had about $15,000 in the bike. It had no storage and no windshield ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Reliability, storage, comfort, confidence in the machine and fuel economy.
    Cons: It is hard to find anything negative to say. Perhaps checking air pressure is cumbersome.

    Summary: At 60 years of age I decided I wanted a scooter. I am a resident of NSW, Australia. To obtain a L permit you need to attend a training school and pass an theory exam. After achieving this I purchased a 150cc Taiwanese made scooter, a TGB. It was a nice ... read more

    Pros: A miser with gas, with a nice protected ride
    Cons: Poor handling related to obstacles like potholes, starting problems and locks freeze in cooler weather.

    Pros: Comfortable ride around the neighborhood; great engine.
    Cons: Unstable in traffic at freeway speeds and unsuitable for such use.

    Summary: I loved this scooter when I first got it. I purchased it new from the dealer and promptly began the break in process, cruising around the neighborhood. The 400 cc engine runs beautifully. The first problem I noticed was that the short windshield ... read more

    Cons: none really, other than no sidecar for my Lab

    Pros: Comfort, convenience, power and appearance.
    Cons: Wind turbulence and non-analog gauges.

    Summary: I just spent my first weekend riding the Yamaha Majesty 400 and am having a blast. My girlfriend and I traded in a pair of 2004 MZ Moskito 125 scooters for our new bikes. We wanted to get out of town a bit further than we could on the smaller rides. ... read more

    Oct 4, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great mpg, no 2-stroke buzz, looks good, handles great
    Cons: Too tall for wife, passenger seating needs backrest for confidence.

    Summary: I bought the Majesty to save gas since my daily driver is a full sized pickup that gets 15mpg. I had not owned a motorcycle since before getting married (13 years, Virago 920) and didn't even try to convince my wife until gas hit $3.19 I reasoned that ... read more

    Pros: Stylish, sporty, fun to ride.
    Cons: A little "clunky" off the line. The slow speeds are just not as smooth.

    Summary: I have had my Majestic for about a month now. It has performed perfectly. I took the break-in seriously and kept it at or below 4000 rpm. That was hard to do, but I would let it loose every once in a while for a short spurt. I got 67 mpg over the 600 ... read more

    Cons: Would like it 6 inches longer

    Summary: I bought my Yamaha last July and continue to appreciate its abilities/technologies more and more. For one, the climate in which I reside is cold…below zero cold so I only get 6 months at best to ride. But I must say that the electronic fuel injection is ... read more
