 Yamaha YP250 Majesty

The Yamaha YP250 Majesty was a large scooter that embodied a new genre of bikes emulating sporty sedans. It is capable of both agile maneuvering in line with the rider’s intentions as if the rider and bike are united, and a great sense of security to relax the rider’s body and mind. With the application of a new 250 cc engine, front and rear 12-inch wheels and 245-mm disc brakes on the front wheels, the YP250 had acceleration performance to spare, alongside stability at high speeds and secure braking. Its ergonomically designed seat with a variable back rest, aerodynamic form to minimize back pressure during riding, and body mount fairing allowed fatigue-free riding. Usability was also improved by the provision of three large spaces under the seat and the like, which allow the storage of a B4-sized attache case or full-face helmet.
