I don't know about that! When I hit around 9000 rpm, mine tends to start climbing in 1st and 2nd.

Modifications so far:
Axxiom valve kit, Traxxion spring kit
CBR600RR shock, Tail Tidy, Triumph bar end mirrors
FP Racing levers, -1 front sprocket, Gel seat insert.

Now tire skip at high rpm and a power wheelie are two totally different things

So you are guessing

Something you may not have considered, as a starting point my bike/rider combination is over 200 lbs lighter than you on your S3 ......we haven't even factored in modifications yet and your blanket statement already falls apart.....

A wheelie, in my mind, is to get the front wheel up and balancing on the rear tire for some time, and this is usually done with the clutch. A power wheelie, at least the way I've seen it defined, is when the front wheel lifts due to the torque alone while only applying the throttle but I'm not talking about the rapid, jerky, application. A power wheelie is what you see racers do coming off the corners. They are not trying to wheelie, quite the opposite, but the raw power and torque simply lifts the tire off the ground. That, is the definition of a power wheelie in my mind. My street will indeed, lift the front tire when I'm full on at between 9000-10000 rpm in both 1st and 2nd without me trying. This is a power wheelie, torque alone is lifting the tire off the ground not a sudden application of additional "power" by the aid of the clutch (clutch-up). We can agree to disagree, but that should clarify what I mean by "power-wheelie".

Modifications so far:
Axxiom valve kit, Traxxion spring kit
CBR600RR shock, Tail Tidy, Triumph bar end mirrors
FP Racing levers, -1 front sprocket, Gel seat insert.

Easy to keep wheel up by doing clutchless shift from first to second my 955 did it easily.
