The Majesty was already known to scooter riders elsewhere in the world when Yamaha introduced it to the United States in 2005. The U.S. Majesty, with 395 cc of engine power, was the biggest in the Japanese manufacturer’s Majesty line. Majesty scooters in other countries had much smaller engines ranging from 125 cc to 250 cc. When it was introduced to American markets, the Majesty 400 was considered Yamaha’s top-of-the-line scooter. In introducing the maxi-scooter to the United States, Yamaha said the Majesty 400 ""pumps out the power of a motorcycle with the convenience and comfort of a scooter."" The Majesty 400 has lots of under-seat storage, with 16 gallons of space that will hold a full-face helmet, laptop, and more. The under-seat storage has an interior light so riders don’t have to search for things in the dark. More lockable storage can be found behind the leg shield. If more storage is needed, such as for a weekend trip, top cases can be found from aftermarket sellers.
