If you have lots of hills in your city, you should consider an ebike with gears.
Single speed ebike might not do well with rides that involve many hills.

Specify the distance you would like to travel on majority of your rides, that would help determine how much battery capacity you should consider.

It's difficult with used ebikes to determine the battery life, how many cycles it has been used or what conditions the battery has bee stored when not in use.

Personally, if I can afford it, I will always get a new ebike.

But I know supply chain is difficult to find the new ebikes available for immediate shipment.

Where are you located?

Greece, Kavala . Yes as you can see I have a low budget (500$) although I think I prefer the new Bike over the used one , even though the used one has maybe better specifications. What’s your opinion about it?

My opinion would be purchase new if you can afford it.

There are just too many variables with used ebike market, too many unknown that can seriously reduce the lifespan of the battery, components, etc..

If you are good with doing mechanical maintenance yourself & you have (access) to maintenance tools; likely you would ok with a used ebike that just need some minor maintenance.
But if motor needs work with internal gears, signs would be loud, grinding sounds from motor, that would require some specific tools.

Good luck with your search.
