Don't try this at home. In fact, don't try this at all: While riding your new 1000cc sportbike in first gear at 15 mph, open the throttle all the way, and keep it open. Don't tuck in, just sit up. Whether or not you make it to redline without flipping over backward, you'll learn that even a current 160-bhp superbike is acceleration-limited by its relatively short wheelbase and high center of mass-both compromises designed to give it agility and cornering clearance. Bolting on a longer swingarm and a shorter fork would reduce wheelies, but then your bike wouldn't go around corners.
