I thought that too. I would normally run the same pressure at both ends. Having said that, I don't have a wealth of experience.

These pressures have been working great for me. I got 7800 km out of my front tire and still have some life on my rear. You can run a little less for track days on the front.

Can't speak to that particular tire but I've always run (per manufacturers) higher front pressures with Bridgestone BT003RS and Pirelli SC. I *think you want higher front pressures for feedback on braking

The OEM tire pressures listed in the Ducati Owners Manual are derived from the factory test riders' recommendations for the best balance between mileage and grip. In general, as you lower the rear tire pressure, the tire operating temperature increases — so the grip gets better, but mileage suffers.
