I have DWC on 3 and my bike doesn't wheelie much at all, usually it just takes the weight off of the front wheel enough to make the head shake.

Cheers

I would like to get the front up using the throttle rather than using the clutch.

I leave my Wheelie control off on the the street.. Me likes the wheelies LOL On the track I set it at level 3..* It will still come up when wide open but it is much more manageable..At level 4 or higher it just cuts too much power and really slows it down..

I've got it set at 1. It'll hang the front wheel through every gear at about 6-8 inches all the way up to 140/150 mph

You've got to try hard to flip a Panigale base or S model, I've not managed it in three years of the 1199S without WC. The new R on the other hand has had a few close moments when I've had the electronics off for whatever reason as that is definitely a machine that benefits from a little WC; but I still never use more than setting 1. The power delivery is terrible for wheelies on the R as it's far too aggressive in the mid range, whereas the S and base are ideal for mono fun.

It seems to me from the comments in this thread that DWC is either very inconsistent or there is some external factor that alters it's behaviour. Things like slightly sticky front brakes may slow the front wheel quicker, that may be a factor, I don't know.

Interesting thread. I was going to post asking about it. I had the race mode (used when riding at a spirited pace) at 3 and sport mode (commuting) at 4. Will dial both down to a 1 tomorrow and see how the bike responds. Have been somewhat disappointed not to have the front wheel come up at all in 1500 miles.

It's pretty consistent, it just doesn't really allow the wheel to lift much until it's down at low levels. The BMW is the same, very boring to ride until you turn the electronics right down. One thing to be aware of is that you can trick the IMU and accidently do some hefty wheelies going over hump back bridges and things like that so be a bit wary if this is likely to scare you.

Do you mean consistent for you or consistent across bikes?

Cheers

Just that the way it operates is fairly consistent. You could say that it has different results in different situations I suppose since you can do the odd wheelie with it on, but if you turn it off completely you can really feel how much difference it makes at all times. It really changes the character of the bike.

I run my base 1299 with DWC set on 1 having had it on 3 for months.
I find the power delivery a bit more predictable and while pulling off at the lights I need to act with care I find the hovering front wheel in first and second gear without canning the gas rather nice.
In the past I had many normal 1 liter bikes and they had no electronic restrictions, so wheelie was done with a fine tuned right hand, now I'm getting to ride my Pani with more feel and for me it feels better.
I may take it off completely as my riding skills improve with this bike.
I am of the opinion that the Pani is more difficult to master than say the older generations R1 and blade.
Question,..if the front wheel is aloft (say 25 inches or so) at say 7000rpm in first and I shift it up into second using the DQS while opening the gas will it flip?

This thing still scares the shit out of me
