Maneuvering a Monster vs. 748/916/996/998

Hey all -
While I have never ridden a Ducati, I've heard "stories" that the 748/916/996/998 Ducs have a characteristic of not having the best turning radius' when maneuvering tight corners at parking lot or U-turn speeds.

Just wondering if the Monster has this same characteristic?

Thanks for all your input!

Wes <-- Hopefully a soon to be Monster owner

Well, on the upside: the Monster is so light that you can really easily maneuver it around by hand , meaning standing next to the bike and moving it. You can easily slide the rear wheel if you need. Try doing that with a Goldwing! All in all, the Monster maneuvers quite well. Better than my ST4 in any case, and better than a Kawa GPZ900R too. Haven't had other bikes so wouldn't know 'bout others...
