Traction control off would give the best chance of front end lift since some power restricting nanny is off. This bike also has lean angle sensors and I am not sure whether this could affect power being cut to prevent wheel lift?

I don't know about the new Rocket, but a lot of new bikes have a specific wheelie control system, which can be on or off, or even allow different degrees of wheelies.

Personally, I would wheelie it before smoking it. Actually I’ve never smoked a bike tire. With a wheelie, the tire is still connected to the pavement. With a smoke show..( in my completely unprofessional opinion), the bike is “ fluid” , and subjected to multiple factors of...” error”. .... wow. Someone one here has already called me a *****. I guess maybe I am.....Oh No. I’m in my 60’s now. N have probably earned my caution.....lol ...Up way to late.
Very lightly, I assure you. Those tires are expensive and AZ roads are already like sandpaper and grind them down quick.
