To accelerate push the lever forwards with your thumb. Accelerating is gradual rather than an on/off switch. Accelerate all the way up to top speed and any speed in between. When released the lever returns to the neutral position.
To brake, from neutral position, move the lever backwards to activate the brakes. The brakes are electronic and won’t hold you still but will bring you to a stop when riding.
