I think when you make the bend, your speed will slow down at the same throttle setting, but if you try to maintain the same speed, the bike will automatically shift gear so the rpm go down a little then up again...I think lah

let me specify, i find the rear spring too hard for me and the rebound damping is too soft. therefore when i hit a bump it bounce back too fast. as there is not rebounce damping adjustment i set the preload to min to compensate. and now it feel more stable at high speed or cornering. my wt is 65+-kg. however i'm still not used to cornering wif it.. very worry about its clearance. for slow speed sharp corner still not so bad but for high speed corner i dun dare to bank too low so alway let it drift out hahah. maybe got to spend some time training to corner wif this long wheel base things. i hope u can find a good replacement suspension hopefully those adjustable type. let me know if u can find i am very interested to try it too.

qui est??? c'est moi, je m'appel brian.

how dose u guy feel bout the handling of the majesty 250. i know its mean for comfort, conveniece etc etc. but .... as a ... sport/scramb rider i can't help but wonder how can i make it go faster (technique wise). these are some of my observation oh its performance.

1. good brake for scooter, rear brake seem stronger than the front? are yours the same? or is there something wrong wif my front brake :p

2. relatively stable due to the long wheel base. therefore bigger turning radius. tats where my problem wif cornering come. need to bank lower in corner compare to normal bike .. but.... very low clearance deter me from tliting it more.

3. it dun seem to dive much under brake.. maybe my rear preload is min. but this lead to understeering. think i need to trail brake into the corner, but the front fork feel back is a bit vague... yet to find out a way to clear the corner faster. :p

4 generally it lack power to acce out of corner therefore feel i need to maintence the momentum in corner however the unusual brake performance, wild turning radius and low clearance i have yet to find a good way to go fast in corner

i know i should be taking it easy on this scooter but can't help it... lask time on skipper even its not as stable its turing radius is to tight make corner a breeze... hahah

Hi guys,

 

First post here, was thinking of getting the YP400 but then, it looks like a fair bit of teething problems need to be ironed out. Guess I will be sticking to my trusty Honda Pantheon until the problems outlined here were arrested.

 

BTW, heard from HL there will be another 250 majesty model coming in 2 weeks later. I suspect it to be Majesty C. It will be interesting to know how it compares against the older models.

 

Thanks for the truthful information anyway!

As far as I know, there hasn't really been a major update of the Majesty 250.... would be interesting.

 

Now, if only they are bringing in the X-Max instead...... :lovestruck:

You are probably right. The guy at HL says it looks like Honda Foresight. I am pleasantly surprised....But the color he said is black.....hmmm something to look forward to....

I doubt there is anything like this in the market at the moment. It has been in my wishlist to have a sporty looking scooter that hv big wheels and a huge enuf compartment for 2pc 6ft fishing rods or equivalent. This is a dream come true!

 

Wonder what's the proceure like to import ??? Or we could have a collective purchase. From the press, it shares some parts with FY250. So parts issue could be quite safe, unless we are talking about some italian makes.
