I brought home a (practically) new, '09 Yamaha Majesty a couple of weeks ago. I found it at my local dealership, and it had 127 miles on it. I got it for a good price, and the dealer threw in a one year Yamaha Extended Service (Y.E.S.) plan, a new HJC CL16 helmet, and a free oil change.
I've got a '99 Helix that I've been riding a lot this summer, and though I enjoy it tremendously, I've been thinking how good it would be if it had a better suspension and more power. After some research I discovered the new Kymco Downtown 300i, and quickly decided it would be my next scooter. After a little more searching I discovered the nearest dealer was about an hour away, and when I contacted him he told me he would order a 300i for me, but that I'd have to pay MSRP of $5599.
Well I'm not too keen on ordering a bike I've never sat on (let alone seen), so I decided to hold off for a while. About a week later I saw a Majesty at another local dealership, and suddenly a light went on above my head. I wanted fuel injection, and like the 300i the Majesty had that. I wanted a bigger engine than the Helix, and the Majesty checked that box off too. I wanted a modern suspension, Japanese build quality, and I wanted a bike I could lay my eyes and hands on prior to making a purchase.
Anyway, my nephew and I went to my bank to pay off my Kawasaki Versys and have the title signed over to me. Afterwards we stopped off at the dealership to see what they had laying around, and a couple of hours later I drove home with my new scoot. Review to follow.
