TFL leaked some news that their B.A.N.G. bumpers are soon to drop. While they have yet to be officially released, the B.A.N.G.’s look exactly the same as they did for the X.R. Platform. I mean, why change a pruduct that is the best?
These have the iconic finger gripping handle on the front. The plastic looks to have that same buttery texture while providing for a slightly beefier look over the stock bumpers (similar to the XR).
You know these will be available in their solid, swirls and mixed color designs. You can bet they will also drop a limited color scheme as well.
Bash vs B.A.N.G. Bumpers
Bash Bumpers really have a more rounded edge to them and are a little more beefier. I can’t imagine the plastics being drastically different. The main differences are going to be the shape.
For clearance, I do like the rounded edge concept, but having a defined edge is my personal favorite. Functionality-wise, it likely makes more sense to have a more rounded approach for trail riding however, I do not think it makes much of a difference .
As these get released (likely around Thanksgiving), more reviews will come out as to how these feel. Many have anticipated these bumper’s as they were favorites with the XR platform and now for the GT they are soon to drop.
