RiDE™ offers the world's first dual throttle handlebar controls on a
personal watercraft. Pull the right handle lever and you accelerate, pull the
left lever and you go in reverse. Pull the left lever at speed to decelerate.
Pull them both, or in any combination, and the system recognizes your
intentions and provides precise control at all speeds all the time. Release
both levers and you shift to neutral. There's no manual shifting, no gears, no
"RiDE™ provides a level of control that enhances the entire experience and
will be a welcomed addition for both novice and experienced rider. We also
think [RiDE] will make PWCs even more popular."
