Ducati Gearbox Problem?

My homey just bought new Duc S2r, which has 800 2-valve engine. Picked it up at dealer, drove off up thru the gears, later downshifts back down thru the box, shifts into third – whereupon the rear tire locks up solid and skids to a halt. And stays locked up as they load it onto tow truck. Ooo. Ducati says operator error... ?? This ever happen to anybody else?
