The 2013 Yamaha Majesty is a utilitarian, high-tech mode of transport that could almost be regarded as a half-way point between a scooter and a motorcycle. A powerful, liquid-cooled, four-stroke engine is paired with a fully automatic transmission powers it. The easy to operate electric starter means you just need to hit the starter button and you’re ready to go. With plenty of storage space, room for two, and ample power for cruising at highway speeds, the 2013 Majesty is a capable and versatile mode of transport. The 395cc liquid-cooled four-stroke engine generates an abundance of smooth power while its suction-piston-type electronic fuel-injection provides for excellent throttle response and low-maintenance reliability. The Majesty is the ultimate in twist-the-throttle-and-go transportation, thanks to its double-cog V-belt constantly variable automatic transmission. Meanwhile, reliable electric starting is ensured thanks to an automatic decompression system. The amount of air pollution the Majesty generates is minimized by its dual-chamber air box, its air-injection system, and the exhaust catalyst technology. Performance and handling are bolstered by the 2013 Yamaha Majesty’s aluminum, die-cast alloy main frame with steel tube subframe. There’s an abundance of room, even for taller riders, thanks to a 61.6-in wheelbase that also enhances ride quality and handling. The rear suspension employs a pair of long-travel, coil-over shock absorbers that further add to ride quality and handling, as do the 41mm fork tubes out front. The 14-inch front and 13-inch rear tires are mounted on cast wheels that not only look great, but also improve handling, traction, and bump-absorption. Stopping power is also excellent, thanks to 267mm hydraulic front and rear disc brakes that provide powerful, controlled stops. The parking brake is conveniently mounted on the left handlebar. With an EPA estimated fuel economy of 50 mpg and a tank with a 3.7-gallon capacity, the 2013 Yamaha Majesty has a range of 185 miles.
