I picked up the Yamaha Motors Canada 2006 scooter brochure at the Cycle World Show in Winnipeg yesterday. A new accessory for the 05 and 06 Majesty is aluminum handlebar ends (@ $52.95CDN).

Maybe they protect the handlebars in a tipover. Of course the downside is that the added weight and wind resistance of the handlebar ends will reduce the Majesty's top speed by .01 km/h. :D

BTW, there wasn't much to see maxiscooter-wise at the show. Dealer displays included a Majesty (an 05 model), a Burgman 400, a Piaggio X9, and a Silverwing. The Honda Reflex (would it be classified as a midiscooter?) is coming to Canada this year, but none was at the show.

There was a major show near Vancouver over the weekend. I didn't go, but I gather that all the manufacturers had their whole lines there. Sounds like the Peg got ripped off.

The extra weight on the handlebars actually will suppress vibration, especially at highway speeds. If they are long enough, they may protect the break levers from bending in a tip-over. The levers extend about an inch over the length of the handlebars, so even the slightest tip-over will usually bend them substantially. :? (Been there, done that, got the bent lever to prove it!) Looking forward to seeing a pair in three or four years when Yamaha brings them to the US! :roll:

Glad to hear that Yamaha listened and came out with the product.
