Figure for the kit including batteries to cost between $400 and $600, depending on how far you want it to take you.
Most kits come with a throttle control.

Most of those kits have a twist throttle and a toggle switch. You can either twist and go, like a motorcycle. Or switch to pedal assistance mode, battery will drive motor while you are pedaling. With a better controller, it will has cruise cruise control so you don't have to hold the throttle.
