I'm a wannabe R9T owner. Having said that, my current bike is an '03 R1150RT that I bought new in the fall of '02. I've owned it now for just over 20 years, made it a point to hit over 100k miles at the 20-year mark. It now has just over 102k miles. The only thing I've done to it is regular maintenance at proper intervals, replacing batteries, tires, brake pads as needed. The only thing that has gone wrong are: replaced low beam headlight bulb twice, starter rebuild once (as it was squealing), repaired a leaking oil level sight glass seal. That's it. I don't baby it when I ride, but I don't abuse it either. Not at all hesitant to take the engine to red-line, that's why you have a red-line as it's still safe at that engine speed. Super reliable, just take normal care of it. There is no reason any R9T won't last at least that long.
