Ouch..that was painful. Hope they're both alright. Went down at over 140 kph in a turn.

Those are the Ohlins FKR gas pressure cartridges. Supposedly just outdone with the new (KTech copy) Ohlins. That musta hurt.

Highside? Too much gas coming out the corner? Traction control prob set to min settings? Looked like going at a good clip, no real beginner.

I lova da bike so mush. She's good.

Even more painful to watch at 240p video resolution.

Only the rider will know what caused the crash but I'm pretty sure @speedfinn has an idea..

Ouch! Looks like he might have throttled up too much exiting and still at a good lean? Watched it a few times and front end almost seems like it picked up just before he went down? Only the rider knows!!!
