When I turn or tilt the bike on a slower speed it pulls the steering heavily inside the turn or tilt, so that I have to countersteer it with quite a force to hold the intended line. On a straight line at higher speeds it goes perfectly straight.

Other bikes I rode were more balanced on the slower speed turn/tilt. What might be the problem with my bike?

If your tyres are not the problem then the only other thing I can think of which could cause steering issues is the steering heed bearings. Possibly worth checking them out.

I would have thought this was pretty normal. At low speed there is less gyroscopic force from the wheels to keep the bike up.
