In which case the most likely cause is probably Crankshaft TDC sensor or coils /spark plugs.

Also, you might want to check the wiring on the throttle position potentiometer and that the throttle housing has not become loose - a common fault apparently that can also cause the problem you describe

There are many existing threads on these faults you might want to search for...
