the V11 Series are a great bike irrespective of some of the comments you may read, I have a 2002 Scura Sports. The only teething problem with the V11's around that vintage is the gearbox shift lever spring is prone to breakage. It is not either a big or expensive job to replace, check with the owner if it has been done and the spring journal has to be 15mm in diameter. This aside they are a great sports touring machine with little maintanence that can normally be carried by the average owner.
For further info check out the v11lemans.com
website, they have a wealth of knowledge and information available.
