Kawasaki ZX-10R Goes Ka-Boom

Riding fast and nicely on the free highway is very cool, of course, but sometimes things can go wrong. And in some extreme situations, things will go extremely wrong, just like this video teaches us.
This time it's a 2011 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R catching on fire on the very highway, at night. Reportedly, the rider had used the bike with no signs of problems on the racetrack that very day, and was back on his way to home.

The bike caught on fire all of a sudden, with the rider stopping immediately and fleeing from the blazing machine. Thankfully, nobody was hurt, at they were far enough from the bike when it exploded, sending a huge pillar of flames and black smoke into the night.

Take your time to watch the video until it ends and witness the utter destruction of the bike, now fitting in a couple of buckets and with the molten parts of the engine and brake rotors as the only reminders of the former sport bike.
