ENGINE

Peppy, 395cc, liquid-cooled, DOHC, 4-valve, 4-stroke, single cylinder engine produces excellent highway capable power and incredible fuel economy. Top speed of the Majesty 400 is over 150 km/h, making it a great city and highway capable commuter.

Fuel consumption of 21.5 kpl or 61 mpg. Your actual consumption may vary.

Liquid cooling maintains consistent engine temperatures even while idling at stoplights or in traffic, for maximum performance and extended engine life.

Convenient electric starting with automatic decompression system means fast, reliable starting.

Automatic cam chain tensioner reduces both maintenance chores and mechanical engine noise.

Single axis engine counterbalancer minimizes vibration to maximize rider and passenger comfort. This is one smooth running scoot.

4-valve cylinder head design provides optimum breathing efficiency for great engine performance. Highway speeds are easily obtainable with this powerful engine.

Suction piston-type 38mm throttle body fuel injection provides crisp, clean throttle response with excellent fuel economy and reduced exhaust emissions. The system also features a throttle position sensor (T.P.S.) that provides information to the ECU to provide the most accurate ignition timing possible for maximum performance at all rpms. Special idle speed control means there is no need to adjust the idle… a special motor regulates idle speed.

The F.I. system uses a 12 hole injector for excellent fuel atomization and more complete combustion. The injector is located downstream of the throttle body in the intake manifold.

Electric fuel pump is mounted inside the fuel tank to provide consistent flow of fuel.

Rear-mounted radiator is assisted by an electric fan to maintain consistent engine temperatures even while idling in stop-and-go traffic.

Dual air box with dual air filters provides maximum performance and excellent air filtering qualities to extend engine life.

Fully automatic V-belt transmission ensures easy, twist-the-throttle-and-go operation.

Maintenance-free digital TCI ignition system provides a precise, high-voltage spark for seamless engine performance, sure starts and excellent reliability.

Air Induction System (A.I.S.) reduces exhaust emissions for a very clean, environmentally friendly engine. The A.I.S. system reduces hydrocarbons and carbon monoxide emissions by injecting fresh air into the exhaust port to completely burn any unburned gases in the exhaust. This design engine easily meets the EU-3 European emission standards.

Environmentally muffler not only produces a quiet exhaust note but also features a catalytic converter that reduces harmful hydrocarbons and nitrous oxide exhaust emissions.

Final drive is via a clean, quiet, double-cog V-belt.

 

CHASSIS / SUSPENSION

Open, step-through, backbone-style, aluminum and steel frame design allows fast, easy mounting and dismounting. The upper portion of the frame (rear section) utilizes Yamaha’s controlled filling die-cast technology for great strength with light weight.

Trailing axle 41mm hydraulic front fork with 120mm (4.7″) of wheel travel delivers good bump-absorbing performance and great rider and passenger comfort.

Adjustable dual shock rear suspension features 104mm (4.1″) of wheel travel while providing a plush, comfortable ride. Shocks offer 5-way spring preload adjustability, allowing rider to tailor suspension for load.

267mm front disc brake with twin piston caliper provides excellent stopping power.

267mm rear disc with single piston caliper provides strong, reliable stopping power.

Special design parking brake provides additional confidence when parking the Majesty on sloped ground. A convenient handlebar-mounted lever activates the rear brake to prevent the unit from moving. The lever is designed to interfere with the left handlebar to prevent the unit from being ridden with the park brake activated.

Rugged, cast aluminum, “mag style” wheels are fitted with tubeless tires. Front wheel size is MT3.00X14 with 120/80×14 tubeless tire and rear wheel size is MT4.00×13 fitted with a 150/70×13 tubeless tire.

Roomy, 2-person seat ensures excellent comfort. Rider and passenger back supports further enhance comfort. The rider portion of the seat can be adjusted forward or backward to add or reduce leg room.

Huge, 60-litre, locking underseat storage compartment can easily hold two (2) full-face helmets. A vanity light is provided in the rear section of the trunk for added convenience.

Additional storage can also be found in the front area of the rider cockpit. There is one larger lockable compartment and one smaller non-lockable compartment.

Specially designed windshield with laminar flow venting (this vent helps reduce the vacuum effect common with many windshield designs) provides excellent wind and weather protection.

Dual 60/55-watt halogen headlights provide a bright beam of light as well as that sleek, cat-eye image.

Bright, eye-catching LED taillight

Stylish front apron and floorboards provide excellent splash and wind protection and highlights the Majesty’s functional side.

Instrumentation includes analog tachometer and speedometer with digital odometer, dual tripmeters, fuel tripmeter, fuel gauge, outside air temperature and coolant temperature. The instrumentation also includes a V-belt wear indicator light and an oil change indicator light.

2012 Yamaha Majesty Press Release

Yamaha Announces the All-New 132 mpg* 2012 Zuma 50F and the 2012 Majesty Scooters


Cypress, California, June 8, 2011 – The all-new 2012 Zuma 50F is a tough, yet sporty 49cc scooter that makes going places fun, even commuting to work or school. It features a liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, four-stroke engine that is powerful, quiet, and low-maintenance. Sharp new styling and twin headlights on this new model update the original “„tough, off-road” image of the Zuma, while fat tires give that “go anywhere” look. In addition, the Zuma 50F achieves fuel economy up to an estimated 132 mpg*.

Electronic fuel injection provides smooth, seamless power and nearly instantaneous starts while the fully automatic V-belt transmission provides easy, twist-the-throttle-and-go operation. The pushbutton electric starting gives ultimate ease of operation and the air-induction system and exhaust catalyst technology reduce air pollution. The large-gauge steel pipe frame offers strength and rigidity and the 1.2-gallon fuel tank positioned low in the center tunnel provides centralized mass and extra convenience – the tank can be refueled without opening the seat, unlike many scooters. The stepped seat allows for an open and roomy ride for two, along with lots of locking storage underneath and added conveniences like an inner pocket and fold-out hook.

The all-new 2012 Zuma 50F comes in Raven, Team Yamaha Blue/White or Alpine White with an MSRP of $2,490 and will be available in dealerships nationwide beginning in September.
