Your first concern should be how well can the bike be taken care of if he can't use the English language properly.

From the factory, they are surprisingly reliable bikes. They handle pretty well, and are decently quick. I'm not sure what effect the mods will have on durability, though.

they make excellent bikes, and are very reliable. That being said, they need to be taken care and will not be good if the service was skimped on. It was only world superbike champ last year, with an old man as the pilot

You will be better off with a later model RSVR than the older Mille. This one looks like somebody's old track beater. Might be worth a look if that's what you want and he's the first owner. The latest V4s don't share many genes with the Rotax twins. Aprilia tried but couldn't make the V-twin competitive on the track, but they make excellent road bikes.

Here's a better looking one. Lower miles, engine not modded, owner has MBS like many of us do and takes great care of his bikes. Not exactly local but sometimes a drive is worth it.

Trey why are you AT BP working for ATT.
Back to the bike. I concur with the people here and buyer beware.
But then how much money do you have, that may be a game changer.
