A video of the incident has also gone viral on Twitter which has been uploaded by the user @AlluHarish17.

It is also reported that Ravichandra, the owner of the motorcycle, rode the bike from Mysuru (about 387 km away) to reach the Nettikanti Anjaneya Swamy temple in the Guntakal Manda. Ravichandra rode the motorcycle all the way to the temple without taking any stops and the motorcycle caught fire soon after being parked as the owner entered the temple. The fire was later doused off as the nearby people poured water on the motorcycle, however, the bike was found completely damaged. Local media has said that the reason why motorcycle caught fire is yet unknown. And an official statement from the company is yet to come out.

Needless to say, it is quite a rare incident when an ICE-powered two-wheeler has caught fire. And of course it can't be directly linked to the electric scooters - Ola S1 and the Pure EV that got burnt to the ground in the last few weeks.
