Not possible, would not be accepted without export permit and other papers , unless they left original book with the bike.

 

i would say crashed it or sold it or used parts for his own one 

What if it’s been dismantled? Engine alone must be worth a few bob

Yet you didn’t know that the ‘logo’ means that his biometrics are included in the ‘biometric RFID strip’ in the passport. 

 

Examples from Wikipedia below...   How certain are you that you know more than BENQ and what about rocking boats ?

 

Of course, the passport could be fake... who would steel a bike with their real passport.  Unless something has happened to the lad who rented and they’ll find the bike down a cliff somewhere... but we can’t tell that from a photo that the passport is fake from a photo or because of a ‘red symbol’ !!!!

I said I have not seen Ukrainian passport with that red thingy , unless it was new. And I see a lot of them on daily basis . Have a look at google images what Ukrainian passports look like and also look at what fake ones look like and you will see the difference in red logo

Then google Ukrainian Biometric passport....  and you will see your 'fake one' with the red logo (biometric logo) on the Wikipedia page as an an example of a Ukrainian Passport...

Good  maybe now these crooks that rent motorbikes will stop asking to keep your passport and not returning it when you refuse to pay some outrageous damage repair costs.

Seriously? You believe a motorcycle theft is good?

I think the passport is genuine and this is probably what happened: 

 

From the article: 

"However, he also confirmed that a man who presented himself as Dmytro Maruniak had already left Thailand via Phuket airport on Feb 27.

 

The man was allowed leave Thailand after he presented an emergency travel document issued by the Ukrainian embassy, Col Kathathorn explained."

 

So the passport was stolen , Mr Maruniak entered Thailand in January with the same passport , that has already been confirmed by immigration.  And he left with emergency documents February 27, after reporting his PP stolen.  

 

In March this man walks in wearing caps and sunglasses.  He leaves the passport and the staff do not care to look closely enough to compare the picture in the passport with the man wearing a cap, maybe they look a bit similar, same age etc. 

 

So he gets away with the theft, and the bike is already sold or out of the country.  

 

This will be difficult to solve , consider the bike lost. 

Yes, you summed up the timeline well, but I wouldn't necessarily assume the PP was stolen. 

By leaving the country, before the document was used in a crime, the holder has to be absolved from blame. However, he could still be an accomplice in the sting. 

Many people sell or pass on their travel documents for nefarious purposes. There is a good reason some countries won't issue further passports to people who seek replacements too often.

A big bike, like the one I ride is powered by 4 jet turbines from a 787.

 

Seriously it was early and I had barely opened my eyes when I first read this, though it said CB 100.

Motor bike theft is bad all theft is bad but so is extortion .Holding your passport as blackmail until you pay some totally excessive made up amount of money for a minor repair is also bad.I refer to the hundreds of reports of people being forced to pay stupid sums  of money and when they involved the police,guess whose side the police were on.
