pd has the right idea.
and as far as speed...hey man, it's a hardly ableson. i'm guessing 35 mph.

it looks like what he did was fold up the floorboard to make sparks, and then the highway peg mounting bar hit the pavement, which can lift the weight off the front wheel (you can see the front wheel is slightly tucked in the second photo).
after the weight came off the front wheel, the bike rolled/tipped further to the right, bending the highway peg mounting bar and putting the bike's weight onto the exhaust pipe, at which point all hope of saving it is gone.

but he did look cool in the first foto with the "you da man" finger point, eh?
