I've seen plenty of sportbikes with over 100k and still going strong. Most of them are Honda's in fact. I think how long a bike lives depends on a few factors:
1. luck - getting one that was put together perfectly at the factory
2. how it's ridden - I think almost everyone will agree that a bike that is ridden hard will die sooner than one that has an easy life.
3. maintenance - enough said
A guy at my work has a GSXR1000 with 178,000 miles on it. The bike runs perfectly and still looks sharp.
If you take care of it properly it should go at least 100,000 miles, even if you thrash it in the canyons and on the occasional track day.
The bike does not burn any oil nor does it leak any oil. It looks really clean, a lot better than a lot of bikes with no where near that many miles on it.Does he ever add oil in his GSXR? How is the power on it does it still have good torque?
sorry to break it down to you man.. you're probably gonna get 20,000 miles at most.
hahaha jk. but it will come true if u bounce off the limiter and beat the piss out of it.
Another myth. Sportbikes can and will take a surprising amount of abuse.hahaha jk. but it will come true if u bounce off the limiter and beat the piss out of it.
