Italian prone bike

Ducati fans will be familiar with this position. I wonder how steering control is affected by pedaling behind the rear wheel? Thank goodness they split the front edge of the seat!

I looks even more uncomfortable than a conventional wedgie. Maybe an atomic wedgie.

Could someone explane the drive system?

Hello All;
That drive system looks alittle strange. How are they getting power from the left crank? I see the little belt on the right near the crank but it is in the path of the wheel also. Hummm. Maybe someone here is familiar with this drive system.
Thanks
