Ducati's don't use tipover switches? It was still running 'til the key was turned off.

I think he was in the wrong gear. A Duc Paningale should be able to shoot that gap with no problem.

My God what a waste though, beautiful bike, I would give my left nut for one.

He definitely had more than enough time to avoid that, as has already been said he was way too busy making sure he looked cool for all of his youtube buddies.....

That was such a poorly thought out maneuver it make me cringe.
What was the red and white thing on the ground by his arm? Was it a piece of bodywork or did he knock a tooth out?

Reminds me of an old motorcycling ditty:

He was right, dead right as he sped along,
But he's just as dead as if he were wrong.

As many others posted, the bigger idiot is the person who loaned him the Panigale. Especially since the Duc owner has seen others videos of the idiot who (surprise) crashed his bike.

If it hasn't already been pointed out, if you watch his left mirror, you can actually see the van he passed. He had SO much room to swing to the left.

Looks like he clipped the van's mirror then hit the curb with his front wheel causing him to go down. But, I wouldn't let that dude borrow anything of mine - especially after seeing some of his other stuff:



Public roads are no place 150 MPH.I hope he doesn't kill anyone pulling that shit.

So completely avoidable. He was too focused on getting footage and had no sense of caution, he literally drove straight into a box.

There are brakes on that bike for a reason little man, learn to use them.

I do feel pity for the owner of the bike but then again, he did loan it to moran.
