With the 4 valve head, doesn't that make it an RS?

No all Daytonas were 4v/v HiCam engines, the difference between the cooking Daytona and the RS were

Dark Grey Engine Paint

WP Suspension front and rear (the early bikes has pretty awful Marzocchi front forks and a Koni rear shock)

Stage C engine tune (Wiseco pistons, Carrillo Rods, hotter cam, Hi Flow air filter, different exhaust and map)

That looks like an early one (it's a 93 and that's about the year they started in production) judging by the forks, pork chops and engine colour, although it has the pod filters and bellmouth as fitted to the Dr John and what looks like a Termigioni full system, I can't be sure, the crossover isn't standard and the end cans are Termis (or Termi stickers). The white paint job, or it could be a wrap, isn't standard either (but I think really suits it) and the wheels are black, the originals were white, which looked great until you rode it and had to clean them after every ride.

Personally I think it's a really nice example that's been tastefully modded.

All that's just off the top of my head there's probably more.

Even a "cooking" Daytona is a magic thing, the 4v/v engine is a beast, it encourages you to rev it and it sounds glorious.

15k sounds a little rich, but they really are great bikes and I think will rise in value, after the round heads I think it's the best looking engine Guzzi made.

I agree with you 100%

Thank you for the clarification and info weegie.
I had the opportunity to ride my buddy's RS a few years ago on a great curvy back road before he sold it. I was really impressed at how much more responsive (both acceleration and steering) than my V11 LeMans. It felt much lighter - more similar to my old '95 Ducati 900 Supersport SP than anything else.
