Neither did mine in 2nd until I disabled the TC. I'm sure going -1F helped a lot.
Moreover, even in high power engine mode with TC disabled, it won't come up in 2nd accidentally on power alone on the first twist.
You have to work the throttle where the rocking effect will make it come up on the second rebound following a fork compression.

Of course, this is just FYI trivia information. If you really want to wheelie this bike, it's probably a lot easier just clutching it up for those other than me that have that skill set.
