Per the new Ducati Multistrada 1200 Service Tech class, belts are changed at the 5 year mark. They have a video of testing at the Pirelli test track with multiple riders. 25,000 miles logged at full throttle before failure. The failure was the belts and one chain went also. I think that's quite reasonable.
