There are slight differences in initial bite and release characteristics (for the better) but i'd be surprised if many people would be able to differentiate them in a blind test. PFC has discontinued some pad shapes in the 01 all together and i'm sure in time there will be no more 01. The 11 is just a better, modern version. I wouldn't be scared of it.
Have they improved the pad and rotor wear characteristics? One thing I've noticed is PF01s tend to heat crack the rotors pretty bad compared to Pagid Yellows and even Stoptech SR34s.
