1. You bought an Italian bike, it's supposed to have problems.
2. Sounds like the classic gas boiling due to engine heat problem. Check to see that you're not missing some sort of insulation or heat shielding on the bottom of the tank then check to make sure the tank venting system is clear and not plugged up with crud or insect nests.
3. Second what Wolf said - replace battery first.
