Battery...differences between these two???

My battery died today on my newly-acquired 2012, 10,500 mile 700X.....I assume it was the original.......5 years, not bad.
I started on ebay for a replacement. I can get a Shorai (sp?) lightweight replacement for $170 or so........have one in my vstrom 650 and boy, is it lightweight!! (it's been in the strom for a few years now....still going strong).
But I might not be going overboard on farkling this 700X out as much as I have done on my CB500X and vstrom, so I was looking at OEM battery replacements.
This "Motocross" (???) edition is $25 less than the second link below.......but I'm not sure about the cold cranking amps compared to the $131 unit.

This is the more expensive battery, but looks more OEM......might be heavier than the Motocross unit, but I am more concerned about cold cranking amps and life longevity.

Thoughts???
Thanks........really enjoying this forum, and the 700X (even tho I have not ridden it that much yet.......my CC is getting workout tho!!!)

The Yuasa battery, and the Motocross by Yuasa battery are the same. The only difference is the label and the price. I use the Motocross brand.

Here's one site of many that explains it:
