Although it’s understood that significant damage has been sustained by the motorbike.

Bit of an under statement?

Island Echo, can you please stop confusing scooters and mopeds with motorcycles. They may all have 2 wheels but are not at all the same vehicles.

Very sorry to see the burnt out shell of the scooter (not a motorcycle), hope the rider is ok.
