Sounds reasonable to me for 59,000km. Mileage for the year is to be expected. I bought my '99 model (same colour as yours (I think they only offered this colour in '98/99?) just over a year ago in the UK, good condition, she'd only covered 16,000 miles (25750km) and I paid over £3,000 for it.
£2200 is fine if you are prepared to do the work to bring her up to scratch - that's my opinion anyway!
First thing I would do is check the hydraulic masters and hoses - mine where full of shit so I cleaned them out, got a couple of master cylinder repair kits as the plungers were sticking and changed the original hoses to HELs braided - her gear changes are smoother (although still 'positive'!) and she stops better!
I also replaced the original rear shocks with a pair of Ohlins as well as upgraded the front springs to an Ohlins pair. Oh and a timer advance plate.
