Should a 2010 Multistrada 1200 be able to pull the front wheel in 2nd gear?

Just test drove a bike that I am considering buying. It is a 2010 Multistrada the Non S model.

The bike seemed to run well. Although it did sound a bit odd compared to the V4's and the inline 4s that I am used to. The bike came right up in 1st gear. But I was a bit disappointed that it didn't want to come up in 2nd. Seemed to me that I rode this same bike a couple of years back and it was a monster in both 1st and 2nd gear.

This bike has 17k on the odometer and I know the owner takes good care of his stuff. Could this be a sign that it needs the valves adjusted?

At first it was in touring mode. Then I stopped and put it into sport mode. Got back to the garage, did a reset and put it back into sport mode, but still no wheelie in 2nd.

Am I losing it or shouldn't this bike come right up in 2nd?

Take traction control off, and hit the gas.
