That is all.
If first is to risky for you. Then set it up in solo and enjoy a lot smoother roll out wheelie in 3 rd gear. You won't get the high air, but you will get the feel of it in order to expand on it.
I'm comfortable enough with second gear wheelies, but then you have to be as they are virtually unavoidable. First gear is another story. Is that something I have to get used to?If first is to risky for you. Then set it up in solo and enjoy a lot smoother roll out wheelie in 3 rd gear.

If you have never done a wheelie on a Multistrada, it means you have never opened it up in (first or) second gear from 5K rpm. There is virtually no way to avoid them unless you are very, very judicious when rolling the throttle on. It doesn't have to be a lurid high wheelie, but the front wheel will be coming up at some time or another, even exiting a corner. Coming back down (hard) is tough on the hardware, but if you roll off gently the impact is greatly lessened.Wheelies must be a lot of fun since they're so popular, but I wouldn't know from personal experience. Never popped one in over forty years of riding - it wasn't the bikes, it was the rider. And I consider myself an aggressive rider.
About twenty years ago I had a riding buddy on a Ninja who wheelied all the time. I'll never forget the look of anguish on his face when he was told he needed new steering head bearings after only a few months.
To each his own.
You don't think it has anything to do with 60% throttle in urban mode or do you run full power in urban? When I've done that....run the high power setting..... the bike will still pull the wheel up (if I recall correctly:think.The DTC definitely will keep the front wheel on the ground with higher settings (i.e. urban mode). My first unplanned wheelie was with a passenger - set it to Touring and didn't think about the DTC. Second gear came way up before I realized it. Very controllable on this bike...
