I Ride: '16 Pani R, 1098R Bayliss, KTM1090R.
I think that as Royal already mentioned, it will depend on why its coming up.
The circuit I ride regularly has a short sharp incline to a plateau after a 90 deg 2nd gear left,
which is then followed by a 180 deg hairpin. On my 1098 you were kissing the top
yoke as the wheel came up, then wrestling it down an trying to scrub speed for the
hairpin. With the pani set to 3 for wheelie control it makes a great job of letting the
wheel float at about 18 inches before the DWC drops it again perfectly for the hairpin
braking point. The whole section is in second gear.

Taking the setting to 2 or 1 gives the bike too much head for this particular section so
I leave it in 3, though it will then barely float the front anywhere else on this circuit.
Other flatter tracks I need to be in 2 or 1 as I think it's intervention loses a little too much
time when trying to get on the gas hard.

I Ride: MY17 Panigale 1299s
Settings are at default on my 1299s.

in Sport (DWC5) I can open the throttle like crazy even in 1st and the front wont come up.

in Race (DWC2) on open roads I pull nice high wheelies in 2nd gear but it goes down before pulling to 3rd gear (goes down nicely).
in the city the wheelie control always shots me down short time after the wheel leaves the ground (1st & 2nd) or it lets me have a low wheelie then shots me down.

Cant find a logic explanation or understand how that DWC works...
