HORNET BANSHEE BUMPER & GRAB BAR
Hornet offers seven colors for the bumpers and grab bars, with different custom colors available for the inserts where applicable. They are made from 1.25- and 1-inch 6061 aluminum round stock, with 0.25-inch flat stock for the mounts. The bumpers are strong and lightweight and look fantastic. The craftsmanship is incredible, and the bumpers fit the lines of the machine well. For our initial test, we didn’t put anything valuable in the box, but rather filled it with wrenches and bolts just to see if the box would hold the stuff during a hard ride. We also used a Velcro strap we bought from Home Depot to wrap around the box, just in case the latch were to open, which is just added security.
The Viper front bumper matches the look of the quad well and adds a large amount of bash protection to the front end.
We like the Hornet products, and the grab bar brings some function to its form with the utility box. The Stealth and Viper bumpers are very similar in shape, and the Stealth is $40 cheaper due to less complicated bends and material. Hornet offers four bumper styles and two grab bar styles, starting at $79.99 for the Stealth bumper and $42.99 for the MX grab bar. So if you’re looking to save money, you can go that route. The Viper front bumper we installed is $119.99, and the grab bar with utility box is $65.99.
