2005 Yamaha Majesty 400 from United States of America


Own one and you'll never give it up

General Comments:

This 400cc superscooter rocks. It does everything as well as my old Kawasaki Ninja 900, and adds comfort, wind protection, storage, awesome mpg, and lower operating costs.

And it handles like it's on rails. Once you get used to the small wheels, it's a piece of cake. It can do curves, freeways, whatever you throw at it easy.

Acceleration - this is one huge surprise, I can blast past cars at stop lights and on freeways.

It's one heck of a vehicle. For the low price Yamaha sells it for, it's a steal. Best bike I ever tried. I will forever be a Yamaha scooter fan.

2006 Yamaha Majesty 400 from United States of America


This is a well-integrated scooter


Nothing mechanical has gone wrong.

The only fault with the scooter is that various plastic parts clack and rattle whenever I hit a bump with the tires inflated to their proper level. Many areas of the scooter rattle and have to be insulated/isolated with foam rubber to stop the rattles.

General Comments:

Powerful and purposeful design.

The ignition switch is too far down to be readily accessed. The ignition switch should be higher up for the rider's convenience.

I have a 2006 Yamaha 400 Majesty, and I have put 28000 miles on it in about a year and a half, and have never had any problems at all; nothing has ever went wrong or broke on it until the other day when it suddenly lost power. It starts real good and runs real good, but it just doesn't have any power. I can only get around 5000 rpms out of it and about 60 miles per hr., and very slow starting out from a stop. Has anyone ever had this problem? If so, please let me know what caused it. I have taken it to a dealer, and they have spent a lot of costly hours on it, and just can't seem to figure it out. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you very much.

Throttle body diaphragm has some very small tears rips (tears) because it is soft rubber. Replace it. Part is about US$23. Hour or two labor. Common issue.

It is the most comfortable and fun bike I have ever owned


I have had the Yamaha Majesty for about 5 months now and nothing has gone wrong. It has performed flawlessly.

General Comments:

This scooter is very fast and comfortable at all speeds.

It gets approx 55mpg.

With the Givi top case I have a total of 106 liters of storage.

Great scooter.

I have had this scooter up to 108 mph indicated, which is about 97 mph actual. It is very fast and comfortable. I am still surprised at how fast this scooter is. I have had many motorcycles before and would say this or the 883 Sportster was my favorite.

There is plenty of storage and is very comfortable going 80 indicated (about 72-74 actual) for long periods of time. I realize many people don't like scooters, but the new maxi scooters are very fast, comfortable and able to cruise with motorcycles with no trouble. And it is probably the most balanced bike I have ever had too.

55 MPG? Slow down Hot Shot. You should be getting 55-65mpg.

I have had my Yamaha Majesty for 1 year now. I have 8500 miles on it and run the interstate to and from work. I cruise at about 70 mph and get 63 mpg. I am very happy with the performance so far.

I am concerned about the v belt change coming up at 12,500 miles. Has anyone changed one yet themselves? The cost of the belt alone was quoted at 297.00. I hope to do the work myself.
