2005 boulevard c50 high mileage

New to site, dont have my suzuki yet and need some expert advise.
Local dealer has an 05 boulevard c50 at a really great price and listing has it with 13k miles.
So i go and test ride, bike is super clean and ran nice but seemed somewhat lacking in power(my first time riding one so really cant say that with confidence, just thought it would have more umph).
I noticed on test ride that the lcd screen/odometer doesnt work.
I get home and checked the VIN and the last reported mileage was 44,600 in 2016!
Waayyy off from the 13k advertised.
My question is should i run away due to mileage? Really dont know what it is now, was 44600 3 years ago.
Do these engines last?
Its super clean, ran nice, lots of extras and priced ok....the unkown high mileage though...
