The bike's going to cost in excess of $700 to fix with OEM parts from the cheapest provider. That's considering the tail isn't scraped/cracked which it doesn't appear to be. That also excludes the turn signal, bar ends, mirror, engine cover, and bent/broken pegs and levers, most of which look to be in usable shape.
So basically, you're going to be paying ~$4400 for something that you're going to fix up, and probably end up dropping again. For that, you could get a pristine, barely used 500 that would suit your needs just fine.
