Witnesses heard the motorbike rev before the man lost control and hit the power pole.

Sad really, rented a 'powerful' bike instead of a scooter. Obviously to much power for him to handle. :sad:

even a 50cc scooter can go fast enough to kill the rider if you smash into a concrete pylon

Correct, but witnesses heard the bike "rev" when he arrived to the bend, wich suggest that he overpowered the engine (you can't do this on 50cc scooter) and lost control of the rear wheel.

Wasn't there another fatal accident involving a powerful motorbike and its two riders, also Muay Thai athletes, more or less in the same area not long ago? That time it was against a u-turning car instead of a pilon, but still a matter of speed and control.
