Believe it or not, this is super common.

Many people want to use throttle 90% of the time, this is why throttle only intended ebikes are booming.
I just wanted to know about the range, I know more the better, but how much?

This is why I suggested RadMini, because it can carry 3 batteries, and make it 52V 63Ah+ (3,275+Ah).
But OP may not need that much.

If it's 48V, Luna sells 48V 24ah triangle battery, Jenny sells 48V 24.5Ah for Reention DP9, and rear rack can be whatever, let's say 48V 31.5Ah with using a 117pcs battery case like below, and you can have a 48V 80Ah battery.
Thank you

@Amari5522, Straight up, Do you want another ticket? Bikes with handlebar throttles are Class 2. By law Class 2 bikes in the US are limited to 20Mph. If they go any faster than that they are legally unlawful motorcycles. Unlawful motorcycles are not allowed on streets, bike lanes, or paths. You might be able to get away with it until an accident like hitting someone's dog while they are listening to their earbuds and while looking down at their phone. That is why is it accidental. If they walk into you and you have an unlawful motorcycle, you are at fault and will talk to the judge and jury. Or a cop can clock you while you are not even pretending to pedal. All that said, what you want is simple to find. Get a decent bike with good tires and brakes that is sturdy and fits well. Have someone handy and local or DYI a Bafang 750W BBS02 with a second battery. @mikeschn is correct about 'ghost pedaling'. These motors are at the legal limit for power. One watt more and they are motorcycles. Ghost pedaling is simply pretending to move the pedals slowly without applying any work and you go very fast. It is legal and if you do not have a throttle on the handlebar you can do 25-28 Mph depending on a number of factors. This is where what you are asking for intersects with what is possible. This can be achieved with premium batteries for much less than $5k. Here is what one can look like: 1) Solid Bike, Good Brakes, 2) BBS02 Motor, 3) Second Premium Battery. Oh and here is the dog you might hit.

This is in the same category as Juiced HyperScrambler, Super 73, Rize Blade 2, Ariel Grizzly, etc.
You know? Those ebikes that are mostly intended for throttle only, than pedaling.

I think Super 73 is generally a good option because of big empty space in the frame, easy to install second battery.

My suggestion would be buying a good, $4000.00 Class 2 bike and apply the other $1000.00 to an extra battery that you can carry on a rack when you need additional range.

I agree. Even a $3,500 class 2 bike with a spare battery would work. But put the spare in the bottom of a pannier at axle height for a lower center of gravity for handling. Maneuvering in Manhattan traffic can be tricky.

In Manhattan? He will be grocery shopping and needs panniers. 20x4 nobbies are not for pavement. And it is an illegal moped, punishable.

Having the batteries attached to the bike isn't the only option. One could also have spare battery or 2 in panniers for long journeys and only one battery in use at a time, just switch them out as they get low. For going to a local store, panniers could be empty. There are probably other arrangements like 2 x 48v 15ah batteries built in. I'd only be looking at bikes with tires between 2.1-2.5 in for city riding. You could have 4 batteries and a full set of panniers.

Not a bike, but live and let live.

E-bikes are best as they provide ease while riding. I would suggest renting an e-bike & taking a demo then buying it. If you are in Switzerland then check out Engadin-bike for e-bike rentals.
