No, it does not take his hand off. The piston does not fly out through the engine either.

The glove gets blown off. Look for it on Gixxer.com - you can find out exactly what it was. IIRC, it was just some kind of massive backfire.

It was a motor with plenty of nitrous going in. On that kind of engine if you let off the gas at all, the engine blows itself up. Maritan is right in that the rider was more or less fine, I don't remember whether it was his glove or just an engine cover that came off though.
