That is a weird place to get a dent walking up your driveway, it looks like it hit a corner. Unless it hit like a raised edge of asphalt, like falling half on the grass. Check that the handlebars are not tweaked.
I don't know much about exhaust, I would call and see how much for an OEM replacement part and compare if the cost of the bike compared to other comparable used bikes offsets the cost of replacing the part.
