Honda CBF 500 as compared to Honda CbRS

Ok so I have sold my bike and now I am looking to buy a bigger bike. This one 

http://www.gumtree.com/p/cars-vans-motorbikes/honda-cbf-500cc-abs-black-57-quick-sale/1007745106.

How exepensive is it going to be to run this bike given its high mileage. I am looking at annual figure excluding insurance. I commute to work about 20 miles 5 days a week.
I will also need to fit a 33bhp kit as I am still on restricted.

I am not that much worried about fuel costs but other repair and replacement parts

A CBF with that mileage on it is not worth anything like that money and an ex-dispatch bike would have led a very hard life.  Can I suggest that you pick up a copy of this months Ride Magazine.  There is a very good article on their on buying bargain bikes up to a £1500 budget. 

In general it is difficult to know how much a used bike is going to cost you to run unless you know for sure how its been treated.  Even a low mileage bike can throw up expansive problems if neglected / abused by its previous owner.  Look for tell-tale signs that the bike has been looked after properly and you should have no issues.
