Thinking about this bike-Opinions Needed

New to the RC51 world and I want a SP2 in the black/grey paint color. Found this bike 2 hours away on CL and the owner bought it from a repo auction. Clean title and the bike looks clean but he mentioned the silver color of the bike looked different than other RC51's he had seen. Does this bike look right? Has it been repainted? Anything else that looks like it might have been down or has been repainted? Need expert opinions before I travel to look at her.
Thanks!!

It has definitely been repainted (except for the rear cowl).
Otherwise, it looks pretty clean.
Does the bike have a clear title, or a salvage title?

Looks to have been repainted or has aftermarket plastics on it. The price is a bit out of line. You can find one similar for closer to 5,000
