Firstly I am surprised that it's not a Volvo and Secondly I hope that the biker is fine and Lastly I do wish the Telegraph would get the simple things right as the bike in the picture is so obviously a HONDA....and they couldn't even spell Kawasaki correct.......

Kenny it was a Kawasaki. I know this as I read it on the side of the bike while stood about two feet from it. Apologies for the spelling, fifty lashes in town hall square for me.

I was hasty with this remark because I encounter motorists pulling out on me on a daily basis. I've since learned that the biker admitted responsibility for the crash because of excessive speed.
Apologies.
