Much like cars, this all depends on how it is treated. If you perform the maintenance when it is needed they can last for many years. My brother has an 80's model bike that I know he has gone past 400K miles, but he is religious with the maintenance plan and takes great care of it. ----------------------------------- Some types of motorcycles simply last longer. I have helped a man restore a 72 Harley for the bike's third full restoration with only 50,000 miles on it. I have seen many BMW and Honda touring bikes well into 6 figures of mileage. If you don't maintain it, don't expect this to happen.

45,000 miles is considered very high for a motorcycle. I would only consider buying if the price was well under $1,000. I would say a typical motorcycle owners will ride about 2,000mi each year. A motorcycle enthusiast may ride 5,000 each year. A daily commuter may do beyond 10,000 miles each year. Assuming the bike you're interested was used for daily commuting, even with meticulous maintenance, a lot can happen over the course of 45,000 miles.
