If ticking is evident from the right hand throttle body, its an easy fix
The front engine cover will probably be scabby as hell, if it is, its not a sign the bike has been neglected, they all do that sir.
Find out what version of ABS it has and do your research, ABS 2 is the better system some say. the later Servo systems can be problematic and often are removed
Don't be put off by the oil cooler looking scabby if it does, they all do that sir
does the starter stick in mesh when it is started from cold? if so its a very easy fix
on main stand, wobble back wheel from side to side and top to bottom. Investigate any play
on main stand, wobble front forks about and front wheel from bottom of forks (all standard stuff)

A general good look about not forgetting the tyres. inspect the docs carefully paying attention to detail rather than scanning quickly thru as most do.

If it looks and feels right, it probably is.
