2013 STR 675 R Big end gone?

HI,
Looking at a potential purchase of a 2013 STR 675 R thats got an engine rattle but with only 20,000kms on the clock.
Can anyone please help me diagnose the issue and cost up repair, or should I walk away?
Here's the noise:

Delete the asterisk and it works.

Sounds like an oiling issue. It gets worse the longer itís revved. That could be the cam chain tensioner. However there are other reasons it could be getting worse. If youíve torn motors down before and the price is right get it.

Hmmm.
https://youtu.be/pUJmzdqrCmA seems to work only sometimes.
Paste the whole link into google.
Cheers

I also thought it sounded like oil starvation. Could have stuffed up the big end and journal bearings.
Not worked on Triumph before. Hopefully no special tools needed.

There's a couple special tools but nothing outrageous. Frame adjuster which amounts to a huge flat blade is about the only thing unique to the Triumph I can think of right off the top of my head. You can pick up good motors for under 2k so if it's cheap enough you can do a swap I'd go with it and tear into the motor and see what's going on.
