Question Upgrading the RAD Mini

Looking to upgrade with help from the right retail company to install second battery to run concurrently, 52 front chain ring, hydraulic brakes and possbily true 750+ watt rear hub motor for our pair of 2021 RAD mini folding bikes to be much like the Lectric Premium less the mid drive. Anyone have retail suggestions!

Buy a Tern HSD or GSD that would probably be the best upgrade!

Maybe specify what you're trying to achieve with the "upgrades" for you've planned for your Rad Mini.
Higher output motor for more climbing ability or higher cruising speed?
Are you experiencing weak brakes when you want to stop quickly or just trying to maintain speed while traveling down hills that are long over distance?
52t chairing should be just plug & play, but not really helping with hill climbing ability of motor.
