different beast

There is no comparison between the KTM 990/1050 and a V storm. The components alone are/will be superior. The handling, balance, braking, suspension, motor. The bike will be better in every way...

salvage repair?

With the orange frame and black swing arm and the way things are lined up, I would say that is a conglomeration of at least two bikes.

I found a true 2005.5 with 8k mile for $7000.00
