You broke the knuckle. It's hard to say what else is damaged, but the knuckle, wheel bearing(s), hub (may be a single assembly) and lower ball joint need to be replaced. It may need the lower control arm, possibly the upper ball joint as well. You'd need an alignment after all is said and done. It also looks like you could use some sway bar links.

Your caliper could be loose- its possible the mechanic didn't torque your calipers to spec, which is creating the weird noise you are getting. Honestly, I would just bring the car back to where it was serviced and get it looked at. They should ...

I am guessing some sensor in the bike is telling the engine to stop and showing the yellow light. Have you ever tilted the bike a good angle to the left or right? the lean angle sensor may be giving a problem. Try asking the mechanics to disable that sensor and ride the bike and see if the engine stalls or light comes up. Also check the temperature ...
