The top one in the OP is the OEM rack from Givi for the 1st Gen Versys models. The "US" ones in the OP are the non-OEM version of the Givi rack for the 1st Gen Versys models. Both are marketed as PLX447, which leads to some confusion. If you don't have a Givi top rack, the non-OEM version also needs an additional bracket kit for the part that bolts under the grab handles (it comes with the Givi top rack).
I've had both, but went with the non-OEM version as it was easier to fit it with my existing Givi top rack. The OEM version will work with the Givi top rack, but it's not nearly as easy an installation.
