I've said it before and I still think it's the case. The concept of using the engine as a stressed member will make the frame (front) to be much shorter than conventional aluminum frames. In conventional aluminum frames, it stretch from the steering head, all the way to swingarms pivot. In Ducati's case, the front sub frame only connects the steering head to the engine, and you can only flex such a short frame so much, regardless the material you use.
