At 26:44, the point where the rear tire contacts the road kind of goes out of focus.  And the road surface the bike is on is a different color than the road surface around it.  Sand? Deteriorated pavement?  Pavement damaged due to a fuel/oil/something else spilled? 

I don't see any evidence something touched down.  You can see space between the panniers and the road at the time I note. 

A puncture is also possible.  We just don't know enough, and video can be deceiving or falsely confirm held opinions.

I watched via YouTube, where I discovered there is a 73 second version showing just the accident.  UNFORTUNATELY, this version is marked as a "deadly" accident.

I hope that is deliberately false to hype the video for more clicks

I agree, rear tyre lost grip & rider panicked.
He wasn't leaning over very much, unless maybe his stand came loose.
The road there looked dirty.
He should have immediately pulled in clutch, shut throttle and rolled on to stability; then slowed to a stop for a change of underwear!
I think the camera rider got a bit close at times.
I thought he was going to pile into the back of the 1st rider!
