If you're a member at Venturers.org, look up posts by me. When i traded in my 2006 RSV for a 2012 Cross Country Tour, I wrote up a comparison on that site. It should be in the 'Other Models' or 'Other Brands' section of that forum.
If you enjoy the storage capacity of the RSV, and if that is important to you, then the only way for you to go is to the XCT. It will increase your storage capacity. All other options will decrease it.
XCT is not top-heavy like the RSV, and the seat is lower to the ground.
I'm using the stock seat on my XCT, and am quite comfortable with it, after nearly 50,000 miles. No stock seat is as plush as the pillow seat on an RSV, but 'plush' is not the only way to be comfortable. Seats are a very personal choice. Try. It out, along with your passenger, and decide what is right for you.
You can add Bluetooth accessories to XCT, to connect the audio system with your Sena SMH-10 headsets. Be aware that you will have to buy several parts that are not clearly specified, so the process may be frustrating and more expensive than it first appears to be. Victory's way of selling these audio accessories is annoying and your dealers probably will not know what they say that they know.
You've not had an adjustable windshield on your RSV. The one on the Vision is really cool, but XCT doesnt have it. However, you can buy a manually-adjustable shield and brackets for XCT. Its called 'Madstad', made in Florida, possibly near you. Search for it on this forum, and you will find information and pictures.
Unless you're ready to move down to a less-equipped bike than your current RSV ride, you should be getting yourself a Cross Country Tour. Vision is a really cool bike, and has that electrically-adjustable windshield, but storage room is not what it ought to be. Cross Roads is a cool bagger, but storage is definitely a step down from what you already have in the RSV, there is no audio, less rain protection, and the one you were looking at has no engine guards (crash bars). I think you will be building it into an XCT. Just get an XCT.
