Welcome to the forum. There are plenty of threads on the "S" model, should help with things to look for.

you want to make sure its a sound running bike and goes thru the gears smooth. the sportster is pretty basic platform with the the trims being different on models. if you hang around here long enough, the "s" designation is likely to disappear.
welcome to the family...
