I can't remember where I heard/read this, but I thought I heard that the motor on the SXV is only supposed ot go 60 hours before it needs a rebuild. I know it was under race conditions, so I was wondering what sort of life that might translate to in a street bike? Any ideas?

Last I heard that Aprilia revised motor expectance and it is now rated at 90 hours. 60 race hours = roughly 3500mi so 90hrs=5000, well if that is under race condtions I would expect a 550 that is only ridden on the street to last close to 6-8 thousand miles. ??
