This is not true at all. Quite often a generous dose of trail braking going into a turn will help, as will hanging off and leaning the shit out of the bike.
Any bike will do amazing things if you give it a chance.
If you have never experimented with trail braking, hanging off and really leaning into it, yeah, you're probably fooked.
