It's the same as the clear Givi and the rare dark 118bikes windscreen like I have. Lots of info on them over in the thread about windshields. Kappa and Givi are the same company. Kappa is just cheaper.

I've just fitted the GIVI version along with Palmer Products bracket.  Made a big difference. Great noice reduction and very little if any buffering. It's pretty high for those like me who are not that tall and the MRA screen would probably look better and be just as good.  Looking at the side deflectors from Mastad as a final addition in the future.

I was't able to find the Givi windshield from a Canadian company but did find one that sells the Kappa Windshield so placing the order today.

Follow up
Purchased the Kappa Windshield Clear - KD1121ST from fortnine.ca fro $110
Its is made for the  CB500X - 2017-2018 so easy to install. The windshield does not interfere with the Hand Guards.
I'm 6,2 and the added height to the windshield is making a difference.  :046:

Iíve just installed the GIVI windshield. The stock mirrors hit it at full lock, probably because I have 25mm risers with the bars rotated-up a little. The left Barkbuster Storm also slightly taps the windshield at full lock, but not the right Barkbuster (weird).

I have Moto Werk mirror extenders on order and if there is no bad buffeting, I may just dremel-out a notch from the left Barkbuster. Otherwise, put me down for the Palmer bracket.

Longer bolts and tap washers will move the screen from the Barkbusters.
