RiDE (Reverse with Intuitive Deceleration Electronics)
Pull the right lever to accelerate, pull the left lever to reverse. Pull the left lever at speed to decelerate. Pull both levers in any combination, and the system recognizes your intentions and provides precise control at all speeds all the time. Release both levers to shift to neutral.
Operation is simple with no manual shifting, no gears and no complicated processes. Benefits include enhanced handling and smooth deceleration with full control and limited nose-dive. Select models also feature electric trim, further allowing the driver to customize the ride.
