From asking around I don't think so. KHI want you around to buy the next model. It's probably a directive from the marketing unit, not to kill off customers.

@Rick150 thank you again. Finally confirmation to what I am seeing is not unique to my bike. Now the thing is how do we disable it? I have tried turning off the traction control with mixed results. I need to try it in cooler temps and lower alts.

During our winter which has just finished and even a few degrees above freezing my bike won't lift the wheel more than a couple of inches with everything off. You probably need to do a flash to modify the wheel sensors.

The wheelie control is most likely in the IMU (Gyro). It will wheelie slightly, and can be carried if you do it smoothly, very smoothly. So that rules out the wheel speed differential.

A couple of thoughts:
1. Rotating the IMU forward? It seems that it has a permanent level because it knows the lean angle when you switch it on. So it is not resetting. Which means maybe rotating it forward might allow for a bigger wheelie. And if it could be set to allow say 18-24 inches that would be perfect. Even 12" would be fine.

2. Turning off traction control? I have tried this with mixed results. But conditions were terrible (baking hot), now that it is cooling off I will give it a more controlled try.

Went for a ride today, air temp about 65F, did notice a little less power than when I have been riding just above freezing. So what your experiencing is normal.

Rick, for the most part I have been riding in 80-110F so it is just now starting to cool down. We get very cold in the winter(sometimes -20F) and I usually ride my Concours 14 when it gets below 55F.

So now I can start to get a better idea of how it really should run, I will take it to a lower alt in cool weather and try some different approaches to wheelies and seat of the pants power.
