I think 2k would be reasonable (in our area) since it has no farkles and needs tires (and what else?). How about chain and sprockets. Probably still has the original chain, so that's another $150-200 to spend in the nearer future.
Given its age it needs all new fluids, I bet you they have not been changed.
Valves check needs done, unless the current owner has proof it has been done (unlikely, first check is due at 15k)
Better check it out carefully. The low mileage is not really a benefit, because the current owner may not have done any maintenance other than oil changes. Its still a 13 year old bike. Nothing wrong with that but maintenance needs to be done as if it were a 45k bike.
