Interesting comment from Dovi. The Ducati is known to understeer "the bike wants to go straight". Unfortunately understeer is a fatal flaw. To correct your line you need to either increase the lean angle or the steering angle. Both increase the load on the front tire. If you are on the limit, you will lose the front end. Result: you can't enter the corner on the limit with a bike that understeers. Racing motorcycles must be designed to oversteer. This is Ducati's flaw.
