Axle failure on a Pani V4s by the look of it... put it here because that axle is spammed all over the Duc product line:

Facebook post - Axle Failure

First time I've ever heard of this, I suspect improperly torqued bearing nut but could be caused by other things too...

Like the Jesus nut on a copter. “ We aren’t covering that ! It broke on this side and fell off on that side. No relationship. “

Sort of like this?
This was my VFR800 about 2 years ago.
Rear sprocket disappeared down the road.
Wheel stayed on while I coasted to a stop.
Could have been worse, and I was able to buy used parts and fix it up.

Pani snapped an axle, you can see brake rotor still attached to the wheel, VFR ^ just lost a nut...

yea when i read that it became pretty obvious bearing failure (overtightened pinchbolts probably...).
