Thunderbike GP Limited | The white high-flyer

Thunderbike 's GP series and once again underlines the sporty appearance of its breakout conversions.

The entire front end is made from many individual components that are created in Thunderbike production. The lower fork tubes with the radial brake caliper holders and the solid axle clamp are milled from solid solid material, as are the fork clamps and the handlebar mounts. The inner workings of the telescopic fork, which comes from Bitubo, can be fully adjusted in terms of rebound and compression as well as spring preload. The Grand Prix fork accommodates a 23-inch monoblock wheel that has flared brake disc mounts. Two 340 mm floating brake discs are braked by Brembo monoblock brake calipers.

Exclusive design of the GP series: white meets gold

When selecting the color scheme for the design, after a short, intensive brainstorming of ideas, the preference quickly emerged for white as the main color, which was considered essential for this GP series. The special detail of the gold-colored wheels was specifically selected, while the majority of the color scheme was deliberately left open. This freedom in the choice of colors led to the creation of a motorcycle that now reveals its individual class and character as “The White High-Flyer”.

Optimized performance: The Grand Prix fork and Brembo braking power

The Grand Prix fork represents a remarkable fusion of design and technology and is specifically designed to accommodate a 23-inch monoblock wheel. The precise, flared brake disc mounts are not only an eye-catcher from an aesthetic point of view, but also optimize the performance of the wheel through improved heat dissipation.

When selecting the braking systems, nothing was left to chance: two floating brake discs with a diameter of 340 mm are kept in check by high-quality Brembo monoblock brake calipers. This combination provides unparalleled stopping power and ensures precise handling, even in the most demanding driving conditions.

Aesthetics meets innovation: the choice of paintwork in the GP series

The decision to paint was made in an atmosphere of creative synergy. Ingo and Andreas, both with a deep understanding of the importance of aesthetics in motorcycle design, came to a unanimous decision after a short but intensive brainstorming session. White, the symbol of purity and precision, should be the dominant color of this GP series.

The color white provides a clean and simple base that symbolizes both the start of a race and the beginning of an adventure. It emphasizes the motorcycle's fine lines and flowing design, giving it an attractive look that attracts attention on the track and in traffic alike.

Customer request in focus: gold accents in a tailor-made motorcycle design

The customer, whose preferences and wishes were the focus of the customizing process, brought in the request for gold-colored wheels. Gold, traditionally associated with victory and success, creates a striking contrast to the pristine white of the machine.

Aside from this specific requirement, the customer gave the experts free rein to design the rest of the color scheme. This trust in the designers' expertise and artistic vision has allowed the motorcycle to now be known as "The White High-Flyer" - a designation that highlights the bike's uniqueness and head-turning character.

The GP Limited: A masterpiece of speed and style

The GP Limited, now complete in its white glory with gold accents, embodies speed, style and exclusivity. Every detail has been carefully planned and implemented to create a driving experience that is unparalleled on both a visual and technical level. From the lustrous paint to the flawlessly machined components, every element contributes to the overall aesthetics and performance, making the motorcycle greater than the sum of its parts. It's a tribute to motorcycle culture, a work of art on wheels ready to conquer the streets and make the hearts of enthusiasts beat faster.
