Congrats on the purchase and welcome to the club!
Nothing wrong with the bike, it's cheap because it's a fairly old model by today's standards and dealers just want to make a sell.
Previous owner probably seldom rode it and decided it wasn't for him hence the low mileage.
As for the brakes, Kawasaki uses Tokico brakes on Ninjas (branded as Kawasaki) so they probably used them on Versys before they switched to Nissin.
Judging by the brake lines color (matching the bike), they look stock to me. I could be wrong about the model brakes, but it's still an OEM Kawasaki brand so you shouldn't worry about it.
When it comes to maintenance, since it only has ~2500 miles on it, there's really no need for any major inspection (valve clearance or TBs) because the bike simply hasn't been ridden enough despite its age.
Just replace the fluids (oil mainly, brakes and coolant if they're 'dirty') and ride. If it sounded and felt good on the test ride, that's because it is. Despite what some people say, bikes don't degrade over time by sitting in a garage. lol
P.S. Might want to change the oil filter as well, while you're at it.
