I saw this when it happened and they interviewed him the next day. Apparently the Honda Fireblade SP2 (our CBR1000) is having a gearbox issue during which it finds a false gear and proceeds to destroy the entire tranny which in turn can lock the motor or, in Martin's case, cause him to lose control of a 140mph bike. Either way, dude is lucky to have not only walked away with a bruised wrist, but with his life.
