The electronics are huge in current bikes. In one of the last issues of sportrider they broke down most of the electronics, and the Ducatis are the worst offenders. The traction control is preset for every single turn, straight away, and bump. The bike is set up for the ideal line/speed, and its the rider's job to hit that essentially. ABS is also preset, and other various forms of throttle control. That's why you don't see as much "drifting" with the new bikes.

Man that is rough, two deaths in a very short period of time, I'm surprised people are calling to have the sport banned here in the states
