DC motor speed does not follow sine profile

A DC motor is given ac to vibrate ta different frequencies and a bode plot of gain and phase are plotted. I need to understand why the motor is not following a sine profile at low frequencies when connected to a tacho. The reason I can imagine is the inertia of the armature and flywheel creates some hysteresis. Is this correct?
