Average life expectancy is probably 6 months to 1 year before it gets totaled in a crash or stolen (if you doubt, check your insurance rates).

If it's lucky it might get resurrected as a trackbike, stunter or street fighter. Unlucky, it becomes a mechanical organ donor.

I'm willing to bet that its a very low percentage that actually get worn out

There is a guy on zx10r.net with an 04 10r with 90,000 miles on it running strong....

I know its not a 600 but i dont see why a well maintained 600 couldnt do the same

Seen a R6 with over 44k on the ticker and ran like a top. It belonged to a fellow MHer. Was a great bike, I am sure it will last for years to come if the new owner takes as much care of it.

My father thought I was crazy when I told him riding a bike hard isn't that bad if properly maintained, since they were made to race! I told him not to baby during the breakin at low rpm only, but he doesn't believe me. He's of the mentality that if I stay slow and don't rev etc, it will last for ages and ages and if I rev it up and ride it like I want to, it will live a short life and break...

Seriously, though, fairly modern sport bikes, well maintained and not abused should be good beyond 100K. You will wear out chains, sprockets, bearings, brake pads, many tires, and need to adjust valves in that span, though. Sometimes transmission issues for 2nd gear due to gearing on a 600 can creep up.

These bikes were built to have the revved out of them for extended periods of time. Little things are going to break, but with proper oil, filter, and coolant swaps you should easily be able to get 100k miles out of a motor.
