For the price not to bad. A new 09 is around 7 to 8 out the door. The V500’s have a following of sorts..not to the magnitude that the rebel has but one none the less. As far as parts go, you may want to do some research. Not sure what can cross over from current models and what can’t. I know locally there is a 500 club and some of them are running 100+ thousand miles on them.
