to the speed you preselected with the speed adjustment dial.

To stop, slowly release the throttle control lever. The electronic brakes will automatically engage when
your scooter comes to a stop.
NOTE: Your scooter's reverse speed is slower then that of the forward speed you preset with the speed
adjustment dial.
