Air filter is just one part of the equation for hp; depends on the bikes other engine supporting systems and even mileage/wear and tear on engine itself.

BMC for me

Neither will give you an appreciable gain you'll actually feel.

It's the fact that they're cleanable / reusable that is the primary benefit.

On a bike with ram air, every 6000 miles the filter should be checked / cleaned.
It's amazing how dirty they can get in that short of a mileage.

IMO

you have full exhaust??? if you dont, aftermarket airfilters are useless.

if you do-BMC or K&N.

Your stock is fine. As already stated the real upgrade is that the BMC and others are reusable. That is really about it.
