And should I even bother with replacing them with the same, or go with the Rosso Corsa or even something from Metzler or Dunlop?

Thoughts?
I do the exact same kind of riding you. I had an 1199 that got wrecked and totaled at 2600 miles. The tires looked great, I bet I could have squeezed another 1000 miles out of both.

If you keep your air pressure up a little higher, that will help with tire life. Maybe something around 36-38 psi, as long as your not pushing it too hard.

I Ride: Aprilia RSV4 F
I ran the V3's at Deals Gap last year on my 18' R1 with 34-36 pressure and got 1100 miles and they were slicks. The V2's would last close to 1500 in tears past on my RSV4 as a reference.

That makes way more sense than some of the numbers others are posting. Iím at 1300 now and frankly they look almost like new.

If you are riding that lightly and non aggressive you will be fine on a tire that offers less grip. These OEM tires can handle a lot of corner exit abuse and hard corner entrance. Try a Q3+, with the riding you are doing they will be more than enough for your riding characteristics.
