it is a case to be proved by trial in the concerned criminal court but if your bike is insured against third party claims, the insurance company will bear the compensation if claimed by the victim and normally a lenient view will be taken by the court in awarding compensation to the victim.

Whether your bike was insured at the time of accident? If so, then it'll be the insurance company who'll be paying the compensation awarded, if any. You can raise the question of victim coming in the wrong way in court and it'll result in reduction of compensation.
