This thrust chart, showing driving force at the rear wheel, clearly shows the gaps between the Ducati's lower gears. The 1198 makes by far the most thrust in the lower gears (thanks to its widely spaced gearbox), while the BMW takes over in the higher gears. Note the difference between the BMW's and Kawasaki's transmission ratios, and how that affects thrust in the lower gears.
