The problem is not the condition of the tire. High end motorcycle tires look that. Problem is the speed in a busy road such as 17th Cross. The young man's excitement clouded his decision-making to watch his speed. If the helmet broke then it must have been a really bad accident from that speed.

A monster has to be tamed well, see the condition of the rear tyre, its worn out and flat, it might have got hot and burst. It is a common practice in India, we don't hit the mechanic unless we have a problem, we don't change tyres unless it is bald. Passion is ok, but it should be backed up with common sense.
