The power output is nice and the fuel range, if correct, is outstanding!  Probably a little small for my big carcass, though.

Ok....here I go again.

Sigh!

Scooter styling design has stagnated to the point that the manufacturers of these things all pass around the same cookie-cutter mold for them. Of course I know they are different in many details, but line them all up, and if I squint in the least, I can't tell one from the other. The general body styles seem almost identical to me...and of course, the shared visual drabness of the entire genre doesn't help at all either.

My my Scooters have changed in 10 years since I bought my 07 Suzuki Burgman 400. Test rode the Yamaha XMAX 300. Very luxurious scooter. Keyless ignition, large 42 liter storage, ABS, traction control....etc. Took it on surface streets and the free. This is one smooth scooter, good over train tracks, freeway cracks..etc., tight chassis, good on turns, very solid. I averaged about 65 MPG. The scooter is big, but with a smaller engine than the Burgman. No flex in the frame while turning. It blew me away how smooth this thumper engine is. Impressive computer functionality, good body parts fit and finish. I applied for financing and am looking forward to owning one. 5'7,250,31 inseam tip toe to balance, like other Yamaha scooters you feel like you're riding on top as opposed to riding behind/part of the scooter. Great wind protection from the stock windscreen. I think that this scooter is the new benchmark for maxi scooters. It rides better than a Vespa and the value for the money is good. A great commuter scooter maybe light touring. 4000 mile service intervals. Belt change light, oil change light, I didn't notice a clock, I got up to about 75 MPH and had to back off due to traffic. The breaks are not touchy. Takes bumps well. No parking brake. Not sure what else to say. Larger than a KYMCO Downtown 300, better legroom too. I will spend more time on it. Today I noticed that BMW announced a BMW C400X, Maxi scooters are getting interesting. Not as big as the current Majesty or Burgman 400, more like a scooter.

I'm not surprised. Being a former Majesty owner, I felt the Majesty is/was the most under rated scooter out there. Sounds like another fine scooter from Yamaha. Might have to look at this one!

I like a scooter than it nimble and less weighty... especially for short jaunts.  I do miss my Bet & Win a lot.

I feel the same way about Harleys. To me they all look the same, but Harley lovers can tell the difference between an Ultra and an Ultra Classic. I guess it all depends how much you like the subject material. Personally, I can tell a Tmax from a Burgman from a Majesty at a casual glance.

It's not as cramped as a KYMCO Downtown 300i, I think I need to adjust the handlebars closer to me. Very Nimble, have to tip toe to balance. Believe it or not the wheel base is a couple of inches shorter than a majesty or burgman 400. Smooth ride. 20 miles so far. I think that this scooter or the MAX series is a game changer for scooters. Luxurious for the price, premium quality and features. Good storage fits my XL Bell Evolver helmet. I am still in auwe of the stiffer chassis. I might have to raise the windscreen too. Overall great bike. The larger wheels make a difference. Last night, I got a flat on the majesty. Hard to compare the two, one is a true maxi scooter the other is just a great luxury scooter.

I'm a bit confused. Why do you say, 'A little less impressed riding it home'? Did it disappoint on the ride home compared to your test ride? Anyhow, just curious. The XMax seems like a very well-rounded bike.

Also, in your post above, are you saying the XM is the maxiscoot and the majesty is the luxury scoot? That's my guess, but couldn't be sure. There are very few Majestys around here, so never really been physically close to one.

The Majesty is a touring scooter. The XMAX is a TMAX Jr. The bike rides well, very rigid frame. The XMAX is a great all around bike and a game changer at 300cc.

I've always been under the impression that anything 250cc & above is a Maxi Scooter. i owned a Majesty for 11 years. While its is a very well made, very dependable, under rated Maxi. But luxury?? ....meh........IMHO only.

Very good, thanks. I think the 300-ish cc engine size is a great one for scoots. Weight is of course an issue, but still I think that bikes like the Piaggio BV 350 (330 cc) and the XMax are really hitting a sweet spot for all around transport. I'll look out for them, hoping they come here.

The Piaggio 330cc puts out @33hp which matches most 400cc engines on the road today. Yamaha's 300 is only kicking out about 27hp which is plenty for around town and local byways but, IMHO, would be a bit lacking on the highway.

Over here it's got a SERIOUSLY high price tag at €6,200. The Beverly 350ie goes for €5,300 and Sym just introduced their new 300 at €4,600 and their 600cc goes for €6,300. That said, the "max" series is popular and, no doubt, there will be a flock of them running around soon enough.

Expat47,
Wow, that is a lot of cash for the XMax 300. I will be interested to see the price here in Canada. I know the local Vespa / Piaggio dealer had a new 2016 or 2017 BV 350 on sale for about $5800.00-- so quite a bit less in Euro. Really, a great deal. (As you probably know, NA does not use the name 'Beverly') This years SMax, the 155cc scoot, was seriously discounted in October.

I'd sure like to see the scooter market do well here; it is fine in the 50cc range, but anything more than that here requires a full motorcycle license, so the bigger scoots are handicapped that way.

Wow!! $5,800CDN comes to about Ä3,850 and Ä5,300 is $7,960CDN. Quite a difference! But I've noticed this phenomenon before where Europe's machines are cheaper in the US than they are in their native country. BMW has been notorious for this inversion since Ralff was a pup and now, it looks like, Piaggio isn't  any better.

BTW, 26% VAT (Sales Tax) doesn't help but it sure keeps the politicians in high cotton.

The BV is on sale; it is the end of the riding season here, for most persons at least. I think it was about $1000.00 more expensive during the summer. One thing I forgot to mention, but which you reminded me of, is the other charges. Our prices are not 'out the door' Dealers add freight and pre-delivery inspection about $695.00 (never sure that is needed), environmental levies for tires and battery, about &50.00 and then there is tax; here it is 12%. So you can add about $1,200.00 or so to the purchase price to get it out the door. Then insurance and plates are extra and separate. Here insurance is mandatory.

Accessories are a lot more expensive here, so that may be in your favour.

Bought the XMAX today. A little less impressed riding it home. Happy with the decision.

The XMAX is the luxury scooter. The Majesty is the touring scooter. Lots of premium features. After 300 miles on the XMAX, I like the maneuverability better. I had the windscreen adjusted to the highest position and the handlebars adjusted rearward. The scooter rides like an Adventure bike, I call the XMAX 300 the TMAX Jr. Good balance, quick turning, smooth on the highway. I can feel that the motor is still tight and not broken in. I had the usb, heated grips and my Tucano Urbano lap apron installed. All seems to work well.

I'm a bit confused. Why do you say, 'A little less impressed riding it home'? Did it disappoint on the ride home compared to your test ride? Anyhow, just curious. The XMax seems like a very well-rounded bike.

Also, in your post above, are you saying the XM is the maxiscoot and the majesty is the luxury scoot? That's my guess, but couldn't be sure. There are very few Majestys around here, so never really been physically close to one.
