The craft has plenty of creature comforts. The standout feature is RiDE, Yamaha’s dual-throttle system. The existing right-hand throttle operates as you expect; the RiDE lever, located on the left side of the handlebars, controls both power and the reverse bucket. Drop that bucket at speed and the effect is similar to braking, rapidly slowing the craft while maintaining a level attitude. Apply it at slower speeds and it produces reverse thrust. Release both levers and the craft goes into a neutral mode.
