RR engine longevity (redux)

There was a thread on engine longevity a few years ago. But engines have evolved, so I'm interested in what issues might a newer (say 2017) engine experience as the miles add up. I'm just over 11,000 miles and must say the engine is getting better and better at this mileage. So strong and smooth. But realistically...at what point does this engine start eating money for breakfast?

I have 24k on my 16 rr. It's a tank, never had any issues. I have friends with 50k without missing a beat.

Just routine maintenance, I havenít had any major issues aside from wear and tear items.

Just got back from a road trip to the East coast and back, did 5000km's in 6 days and now at 29,000kms on my 2018. It makes me happy to hear other people have high mileage bikes without issues.

Cool

I sold mine (2016 model) last year with 108.000 km. Not a problem.
