It's hard to tell for sure.
Maybe new tires, not scrubbed in still coated with mold release agent??
In slow motion, the bike starts to lay down a black mark before you hear the revs go up. It started to slide under power, at which point the crash was inevitable. An experienced racer might have ridden it out but this guy was hosed. I can't tell from this footage if the tires were new or not.
