It depends where the bike lives: Hot and cold climates are both harder on batteries than temperate climes, and bikes that get ridden regularly are easier on batteries than ones that sit for months – though a good battery tender with a float feature negates much of that. In fact, I was bragging about the Shorai lithium-iron battery in my bike not long ago, which must be seven years old now and has never seen a charger, when my friend Jim said big deal, the original equipment sealed AGM battery in his VFR lasted 9.5 years, and his 21-year old Ducati is only on its second battery. So, sealed batteries can last a long time especially if you’re OCD about maintenance.
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

my walmart AGM battery in the Yiben just died after 6 months, and it was ridden daily on average a minimum 20 miles, I have an 8 pole stator, but many of the 50s have a 6 pole which is pretty much worthless for charging the battery
The original battery in the Honda Rebel finally quit after nine years with zero maintenance. It was working fine until I dropped the bike and must have rattled it. It was a run of the mill Yuasa. Hopefully the next one lasts half as long.
