I've got the stock screen and a Givi. The Givi is on now, because it's a bit chilly and the extra wind protection is nice. When the weather is better, I tend to keep the stock screen on.

Windshields are very subjective because you need to balance the wind protection and the looks. Because there are so many designs out there, it will affect the looks of the bike and this is down to personal preference.
I got a MRA with Vario Screen. Its way better than stock. However the vario screen is too small for me as the wind buffeting is slightly there. I might wanna try the X screen as the screen is taller and will offer better protection.
Just installed the MRA Vario with X-creen yesterday. Will try it out soon and report back.
Much better than stock if you can find the right position. Problem is, I'm struggling to get there. If I tuck myself under the bottom screen, it's real quiet. But I can't seem to find the right position when seated normally. I'm 5' 11". Is there anyone of the same height who has the MRA with X-screen who can take a picture of their setting?
