Yes, as others have said this is actually a much higher amount of miles than other manufacturers recommend for changing a race engine. I may be spreading inaccurate rumours but I think Ducati race engines are more like 2-3000 miles or even less on the Superstock bikes, certainly less on the high level bikes which are teared down several times a season. From what I've read and heard the BMW is very popular with road racers such as the Isle of Man because of the reliability and high amount of miles expected from the engines, something I can well believe going by the smooth quality of my S1000RR. Still I prefer the Panigale

You aren't comparing apples to apples. Race use intervals on a Panigale are likely the same or less as Royal noted below.
