For 3,45,000 yen (Rs 2.4 lakh), Yamaha introduced a new scooter-the Majesty S-in Japan. What other countries the latest model will be finding its way to is still unclear, although Malaysia and the Philippines are expected to be on the list.
Yamaha already markets two other 155cc versions – the NMax and the NVX 155 – in those regions. The latest Majesty S shares its engine with the NMax, and this is the same VVA-equipped 155c single-cylinder motor that we get to encounter on the R15 V3.0.However, on the scooters, they were marginally detuned and produced 15hp at 7,500rpm and 14Nm torque at 6,000rpm.
The Majesty S is built like a maxi-scooter and if it ever makes its way to India, it will clash with the Aprilia SXR160 which makes its Auto Expo debut earlier this year.
The Majesty S 155 has a fairly large 795 mm seat and is on par with most Indian motorcycles. At 145 kg, it’s still very high, so much of this weight is due to the large 7.4-liter fuel tank. The Majesty S employs a telescopic fork and monoshock configuration, while at the front a 267 mm disk and at the rear a 245 mm disk control the braking.
