1998 Honda CBR 600 F3 questions?

I am looking to buy a 1998 honda cbr 600 F3 my buddy owns. It is in amazing condition with only 7k miles. I was wondering do u think that bike is too old to buy? How are these bikes? Can they keep up with newer 600's? Overall this is the first streetbike I have owned and I am wondering if this is a wise purchase... show more I am looking to buy a 1998 honda cbr 600 F3 my buddy owns.
