If the mileage is true it is only just run-in.
Ebay

Why would someone only do such low miles on a new bike?
There seems to be a lot of corrosion for such low mileage

If the paperwork could be found to verify mileage, it would be a great buy for somebody.

The instrument cluster was replaced 3707 miles ago. It must have more miles than that under its belt. It could be verified by researching the MOT history (eg. VIN check) to see what the accumulated mileage has been over its various government regulated milestones, like license renewals, emissions checks, etc.

The front mudguard is on back-to-front.

Rob, there's no requirement for bikes to have emission checks in the UK, nor to declare mileage when licensing. The bike still has the vented rear disc, if the mileage was higher than declared, I'd have expected to see that replaced owing to the problems with cracking.

I contacted the seller and got this reply

"Hi
Unfortunately i have no paperwork to back the mileage but I know for sure that it is 100% original speedo, the bike used to belong to my previous employer , he bought the bike rode it home from the show room and left it in his garage for a long period of time as he thought its to fast for himself,I bought the bike from him but never rode it myself.
I hope it helps !
Many thanks "

Didn't sell.
Low mileage but after standing that long it would need lots of mechanical recommissioning, rubber parts deteriorate parts seize etc etc...let alone the cosmetics which do look a bit like it was parked on Brighton Pier for a while and left to deteriorate. I sent a message to the seller (no bids, sale ended)  and said that it its probably a breaker (and offering to buy some parts)  but no reply back.
