Thunderworks Police Motorcycle Outfitters logo
It's not something you think about when you see a Police motorcycle or other vehicle (specially when they're stopping you for speeding NoNo). But these Law Enforcement motorcycles and cars are often special versions that have been prepared by a specialist company.

One of these engineering/outfitting companies is California based Thunderworks. Thunderworks outfit all sorts of vehicles for law enforcement:

  • Patrol vehicles and SUVs
  • Public works vehicles
  • Security vehicles
  • Analog and digital in-car camera systems
  • ATVs, motorcycles and electric vehicles
  • Mobile command vehicles
  • RV and trailer customization
  • Bomb arson vehicles
  • Undercover, Surveillance and Bait vehicles

I particularly wonder about the last vehicle; Bait ???? The mind boggles.

Thunderworks KTM Police Motorcycle
According to their website, Thunderworks have a special package for KTM motorcycles. Based on the successful KTM LC4 dual-purpose motorcycle, their TW/LE1 motorcycle is equipped with the works; lights, graphics, sirens, etc. Ready to catch the bad guys on and off road !

They also adapt the popular Honda ST1100 motorcycle for Police work.

Some of the work they do on motorcycles is the following:

  • Emergency Warning (LED lighting, dual headlight strobes, side firing flashing halogen lights, dual 100 watt speakers),
  • custom rear radio and lighting pod,
  • custom crash bars,
  • radar systems,
  • auxiliary battery (you'll need that with all the electronics),
  • integrated helmet communication system, etc, etc.

I wonder if these folks also get speeding fines ??? Wink
