Brake lever... like on a twist-n-go scooter.

But supposedly it also has a rear brake pedal... Could it be a CVT transmission WITH a manual clutch instead of centrifugal clutch? Or just two rear brakes?

Now that I look at some more pictures on the website, there's a brake fluid reservoir on that left handgrip. Apparently it's two rear brake controls.
