What We Do
ThunderRoad is the premier, indirect lender in the Powersports industry with a focus on motorcycles and titled ATVs. Led by a qualified team, ThunderRoad is in contract with 450+ dealers across 28 states. We have been providing top-tier customer service, professional underwriting, and flexible financing solutions to our dealership partners and customers since 2014.
ThunderRoad never auto-accepts. We understand that each deal is unique, so we invest the time to make a personal relationship with each customer and dealer. Our intuitive credit application, and 24-72 hour funding time frame, keep the process quick and easy for dealers and customers alike. It's impossible to find a new classic, so ThunderRoad finances both new and used vehicles.
Great partnerships deserve great communication. With over 450 dealers, we make sure each ones' voice is heard.
PERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS WITH OUR DEALERS
A customer-first approach means a personal relationship with each and every one of our dealerships.
PROFESSIONALISM & ENTHUSIASM
Our team is built on over 75 years of powersports financing knowledge to provide the best dealer experience in the industry.
ThunderRoad knows each deal is unique, so we have a skilled team of underwriters involved in every loan application. Our dedicated team is available at every step of the process to answer questions, provide explanations, and ensure complete satisfaction.
"They have been able to provide us with additional financial solutions for our customers that has allowed us to retain more business and increase our profit!"
