How many miles can you expect to get from a ZX10R?

How many miles can you expect to get from a well maintained ZX10R in everyday street use? Are there examples of 100,000+ miles?
I do not abuse it and I am probably easier on mine than most. I wonder if the high performance engine will hold up.

Not sure about anyone making it to 100k yet but I've heard of 70k+ on this board...I'm at about 35k, had it dyno'd at 30K and it put down 160. So it's still as strong as ever. Gen 1 FTMFW

There are lots of 80k bikes around. Older guy had an 08 with 70k with track days. Said regular maintenance is all it needed.

I know one (local to my place) that is currently shy of hitting the 100k mark... and it's not only street used, it's also drag used.

Head shake!!!! 100k easily. Just do valves every 15k oil coolant etc. I've seen plenty of 100k bikes. Just take care of it an it will last!!!!!!!! Anything under 50k is t much honestly. Just like a car!!!

Only reason people shy away from high mileage bikes. Is just not knowing who did or was the maintenance kept up with! I'm sure with proper care these motors can last forever. That zx7 or zx9 with that older guy soo g 200k with no issues. Another issue is not alot of people can see riding a sportbike that many miles!!! Lo I would love to have a chance to own a brand new bike to see what I could get to in my life!!
