Yamaha Majesty S 125
This one looks like a cracker. Designed to compete directly with scooters like Honda’s class leading PCX and Suzuki’s Burgman, the Yamaha Majesty will join both the Xenter and D'elight in the Yamaha Urban line-up. The Majesty will use the same liquid cooled, 125 cc fuel injected engine as seen in Yamaha’s Xenter.
The Majesty S has been designed for the commuter first and foremost. Tons of storage space under the seat, a convenient flat floor area and ample weather protection that’s provided by the front screen. There’s also LED lighting and a fairly advanced looking dash. Technical features include a new horizontally mounted shock which tidies up the rear. Brakes are disc either end, the wheels are 13 inch in diameter at both ends.
The Majesty S looks like a competitive package. Yamaha look to be increasing the momentum around building scooters for commuters. The new Tricity looks to be all that we will see here in Australia later in 2014.
For now see the full Yamaha press release below.

During this time it has come to represent convenience and affordability, and for 2014 the new Majesty S is ready had to this strong reputation an extra fun factor to attract a new generation of urban commuters.
The New Majesty S
To complete its urban scooter segment, Yamaha now introduces the Majesty S, a compact and affordable new 125cc scooter that offers an attractive combination of value, practicality and ease of use. Aimed at the discerning urban commuter who is looking for economy and convenience together with style and reliability, the new Majesty S gives cost-conscious customers the chance to own a quality scooter at an affordable price. The lively 125cc liquid-cooled engine and agile chassis make light work of urban and suburban commuting – with the well-known dynamic performance that Yamaha can deliver. The new Majesty S thus brings extra spice to the 125cc scooter category.
MAJESTY S DESIGN FEATURES
Comfortable and compact
Yamaha's design team have paid particular attention to the ergonomics on the new Majesty S, and we have succeeded in creating a compact and manoeuvrable 125cc scooter that delivers very good levels of comfort together with high quality features.
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.
Plenty of onboard storage space
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.
LED lights and modern instruments
To give the Majesty S a sleek new look that matches its lively character, the new model is equipped with an LED position lamp. Inspired by our Yamaha 'MAX' scooter family, the new LED taillight accentuates this 125cc scooter's dynamic character. Completing the package are newly designed instruments featuring a comprehensive 3-gauge design that displays a range of clear and useful information via the analog tachometer, tripmeter and digital speedometer.

Powerful 125cc liquid-cooled 4-stroke engine
Powering the Majesty S is a refined version of the highly regarded 125cc liquid-cooled 4-stroke SOHC 4-valve design that was originally developed for the Xenter. This engine is built to deliver punchy and responsive acceleration away from a standing start, and keep the rider one step ahead of the traffic.
A highly efficient fuel injection system makes this one of the most economical ways to commute, and for a smooth and relaxing ride the engine is equipped with a single shaft balancer and a stepless, low-maintenance CVT transmission.
Monoshock rear suspension
The Majesty S also benefits from a new monoshock rear suspension system that uses a horizontal single shock absorber that gives smooth and stable roadholding. This monoshock rear suspension helps to give a more centralised mass for increased handling agility, while its progressive linkage ensures responsive and comfortable rear suspension characteristics over a wide range of riding conditions.
Large diameter wave discs
The affordable new Majesty S is equipped with a number of features usually found on more expensive models, underlining the great value for money offered by this new scooter. The large diameter 267mm front wave disc and opposed piston caliper give plenty of strong braking power, and there's also a large diameter 245mm rear wave disc brake for smooth and controlled braking.
Lightweight 13-inch wheels
To complement this urban scooter's attractive looks and high quality design, the Majesty S is equipped with 13-inch diameter alloy wheels. Featuring a stylish 5-spoke layout, these lightweight wheels keep the unsprung weight low and help to ensure smooth and responsive suspension characteristics for a comfortable and confident riding experience.
