Not limited to BMWs. Often done with Hondas. That salesman could have been talking about Suzukis.
They really pushed the bar with the Gixxers, light weight and high horsepower. I think they've gone too far, have lost reliablity in the process. CBR's from the 90's are very reliable. It will be interesting to see if the new CBR-RR's can match them.
Here's an article (in case image hard to read) of a courier in the UK who got 852,000 miles from a VFR750, but it did require two engines.
Disclaimer: there are plenty of low-mileage sportbikes trashed by kids more interested in doing wheelies than learning how to ride.
