Any Specialized Sirrus 1.0 Owners?

I have an opportunity to buy a 2019 Specialized Sirrus for $125. Supposedly is 100% but will need a "tune-up" whatever that means. I'm told despite that, it is in rideable condition as is. Seems like a good deal but I'm wondering how it compares to other hybrids in terms of speed and aerodynamics. I liked the FX3 because I felt somewhat fast on it as could lean forward for a more sporty posture.
So I guess I'm wondering how upright the lowest end Sirrus is? Am I going to feel like a windsail? How is the ride? Is it fun or is it like a delivery bike.

More or less the same as any other 'hybrid' that is essentially a flat-bar road (or 'gravel') bike. Assuming it is the correct size, all depends on how you set it up. Geometry on that bike is pretty much the same as on my Sirrus, also a 2019, which is set up for me for efficient road cycling.
