You can see his butt wasn't as tan as the rest of him which would indicate he's not always naked but certainly naked here. The stick he had originally was the one the biker picked up.
I'd say the stumbled across a local indigenous and scared the living # out of him, well assuming he was already caught with his pants down.

After researching Indonesia, there seems to be 3 well known indigenous tribes there.
Example Image of Yali tribe
I would say that this is not a lost tribal member, but simply one of the member of a known indigenous tribe. Whether Yali, Dani, etc. in the past year, there seems to be a lot of news about indigenous tribes losing land rights etc.
Still fascinating video, but nothing mysterious.
Edit add: just a side note: apparently, the Yali tribe were into cannibalism in their recent past. Egad!
Edit add2: More specifically:
lowland Yali tribe members are significantly different from highland Yali. Men don’t wear rattan skirts, only kotekas. Women don’t wear small four-layer skirts, but long skirts made of grass. It could be hence said that they are not as interesting as the mountain Yali, but the opposite is true. Lowland Yali almost live in isolation and are thus affected by outside influence only to a very small degree. It is fantastic to visit both cultures during one trek. A descent from the mountains to the lowland can be a very pleasant experience, considering that our diet changes as well. The diet of sweet potatoes might change to buamera (pandan fruit) or even sago.
Edit add 3: Image of Pygmy lowland Yal with a much larger Caucasian tourist!
Wow! They are a very small people!!!
Jakarta - Spare Mante now become the subject of conversation after the appearance of tiny creatures in the wilds of Aceh. There are a number of areas in the country Rencong ever a silent witness to the emergence of tribal Mante.

I am going to say cgi, obviously it's ludicrous to suggest that you could ride a dirt bike on a trail and suddenly come across a short man who then runs away into the grass
Because it is an alien, monster or something that ats members are sure is mysterious enough to suggest someone would waste their day cgi'ing a little man running away from a group of possible dirt bike goons
Only on ats?
So it might be that the only prudent course of action for any member of a minority group would (when faced with a boisterous group of men) would be to run away as fast as you could.
