Neither, I like the look of my 2008 Burg 400 without either the back rest or the Givi topcase. But I installed the top case because it is very useful and practical. I travel throughout Northern California and the extra storage comes in very handy.
But I do not carry passengers. If I did, I would add the Givi backrest pad to the Givi top case. If you do not need the top case but carry passengers, then the OEM backrest might be useful.
I installed a Besteem top box and liner for the one I had. Much cheaper, just as solid (but not as slick), better liner and already has a backrest built in. I was pleased and I have a friend who recently bought one and he is very happy with it.
