Five important points that will bring you up to date with everything there is to know about the Yamaha Majesty S 155


The Yamaha Majesty lineup of scooters was first introduced back in 2003 in European and Asian markets. Thanks to the growing interest for smaller performance-oriented scooters, Yamaha recently revamped the Majesty S 155 Maxi Scooter. It features the same heart powering the R15 V3, a new design and updated features. To make things simpler, we’ve penned down five important points that will bring you up to date with everything there is to know about the rejuvenated maxi-scooter.



For 2020, the scooter comes packed with LED lights all around and a twin-projector headlamp, a semi-digital instrument console, an apron-mounted fuel-filler cap for convenience and a 12V DC socket.


High On Practicality:

The Majesty S 155 is loaded with practical bits as well, from a massive 32-litre underseat storage which can accommodate a full-face helmet to additional storage in the front apron.


More Powerful Than The Aprilia SXR 160?

The Yamaha Majesty S 155 uses the same liquid-cooled 155cc engine that's seen on the R15 V3, albeit in a different state of tune. As a result, it puts out 15PS of power and 14Nm of peak torque -- 3.6PS and 0.1Nm less than the track-oriented supersport. Despite making less power, it still manages to be more powerful than the Aprilia SXR 160 (11PS and 11.6Nm), which will be launched in India this year. 


Yamaha claims this CVT engine has a fuel efficiency of 37.5kmpl according to the World Motorcycle Test Cycle (WMTC) test cycle. The test uses a system of driving cycles to measure fuel consumption and emissions of two-wheelers under the United Nations' World Forum.


What hasn’t changed?

There’s no mechanical change apart from the blacked-out hardware and brake levers. It uses the same telescopic fork and a horizontally-mounted rear monoshock as before. Same goes for its braking setup -- a 267mm petal disc up front and a 245mm disc at the rear.


Retails At?

The 2020 Yamaha Majesty S has been launched in Japan for 379,500 Yen, roughly around Rs 2.61 lakh, which is almost twice the price of the India-spec Yamaha R15 V3 BS6! It’s available in three liveries: yellow, grey and black. Sadly, a price-sensitive market like India doesn't have the appetite for such a scooter just yet. But there is growing demand, and if the market shows potential, Yamaha could think about offering a toned-down India-specific model which won't burn a hold in your pocket.
