I did a little poking around on the internet.
I look at craigslist to see what people are asking for a bike like mine from time to time, to keep an idea of what it would cost to replace mine. A decent low mileage VS650 tends to run around $3k to $3.5k with a couple years on it. Thats about half the price of a new one from the dealer.
The Roadstar is a 1600cc bike, it is no longer sold by Yamaha, but they ran $12k to $14k when they were new.
I dont know the whole story on the bike, but I would expect to have to pay $6 to $7k for one that is in like new condition with that kind of mileage on the odo. Hell you can find new cars on dealer lots that have that many miles just from test drives, or because the dealer had someone go pick it up two cities away.
Sounds like you will need to at least replace the 9 year old tires, put you back maybe $500 to $600 if you get it done at a dealer, but unless you can find something really wrong with the bike, it looks like a real find.
