New mirrors for 2007 Honda 919

So after owning my 2007 Honda 919 for just about one season, I am loving it. I swapped out the stock rubber lines with Spiegler braided lines and before I put it away for the winter I would like to put on some new mirrors.

I am thinking Aprilia Shiver mirrors or CB1000R mirrors. Thoughts one way or the other?

Edit: After posting this thread, I completely forgot to take photos. It's mostly stock for now, but I'll do that soon!

Looking at photos of stock Shivers and stock CB1000R's just to get an idea. They are similar looking mirrors but I am leaning more towards the shape of the Honda mirrors...

I have the Aprilia mirrors with extenders. $20-25 buck each. I like them. I stick with OEM(regardless of brand) mirrors because IMO they have a lot better glass.

I have to think Honda mirrors are quite a bit more........

I currently have the Shivers on mine, but just acquired some from a CB1000R that I plan on installing this weekend. I like the looks of both, just hoping that the honda version don't vibrate as much at cruising speeds.

I have a pair of these Rizoma Tomok knock-offs
Tomok Rear Side Mirrors FOR Honda XL1000V XL700V NT700V XL125V XR230 APE50 Black | eBay

No fading in the 6 months I've had them

Just as aerodynamic airplanes are simple and streamlined, a motorcycle--which manages to balance an engine and a seat between two wheels--has a mechanical integrity, with intertwining pipes, chains and springs, that is fascinating to behold - Peter Plagens
