Poor maintenance because when you don't clean your chain, the dirt / grease mix makes a very abrasive goo that will eat and thin the walls of the chain and teeth of the sprocket making it less resistant to force therefore breaking / snapping it. There is also the O-ring issues which I am nowhere near familiar with.

OEM parts are alot of times cheaper made then aftermarket parts, all the bike manuf will spec chains from the major chain manuf. and then the chain manuf knowing they'll make , chains, will make it as cheaply as possible.

not all parts on a bike are made by the OEM. heck most of the bike isn't, tires are another good example.

Seriously, my nephew lost the chain on his R6 about six months after getting it. When he bought it, I happened to swing by his house and his chain was as tight as a guitar string. I pointed it out but he had been told "by a dirtbike friend" that street bikes need the chain to be tight. I told him his friend was an idiot, and as I said a few months later I was proven correct when he trashed his countershaft & cracked the case. As it so happened he had started going to MMI and working at a shop by that time, and found a guy with a wrecked R6 to swap the engine cases and internals.
Don't with your chain.

Aftermarket chains are all strong than OEM chains of the same link size. Your problem wasn't a non-OEM chain unless you bought some supercheap knock-off.

HERE'S the damage that happened when my rivet master link failed under hard acceleration. Lucky for me Kawasaki had a transmission cover and I didn't have to split cases to fix the bike.

On my pita f2 I was leaving work and about 500 yards, hear 'dunk, dunk, dunk,' looked down and saw it fly out behind me. Luckily I wasn't going too fast and didn't have any damage.

I was behind Yimmy in the forest and his chain broke. It just unwound itself and started sidewinding. I thought he hit a snake! Ruined the rest of the day waiting for a trailer.

You are too nice, I know who put your chain on, it wasn't you!

But I did see it sliding down the road like a sparking snake!

IMO, Chains do not just come off, they are either abused or not installed correctly. I have had bikes in the shop that some "stunna's" were doing burnouts, broke a link and the chain wadded up on the counter shaft and led to a total catastrofic failure of the entire engine (case, crank and even the heads after the parts went flying )

Take care of those chains!!
