the rsvr isn't bad to maintain at all. curious how much you are looking at to pick up the rsvr....it's really a buyers market right now. i have seen some killer deals go down recently.

I always liked the rc, don't really know enough about the italian....

If you feel the need for something new, sounds like an upgrade, otherwise if only toying I'd stick with what you have and you already know works well for you

the only way I would get rid of the rc is for another v-twin. BTW... the rsv has ss brake lines attached to brembo calipers...all these are upgrades that I would eventually do to the rc. only downfal is the styling...a little dated
