I have just got a new K4. I was warned about the power and all that. It does have heaps of grunt but I was expecting it to lift the front wheel all the time. I havent had it over 9000 rpm (running in) Is the power crazy above that or what? The speed is deceptive though , very fast very easily. I moved up from a '98 600.

The front wheel will lift on a K4 very easily from about 5000rpm.
I doesn`t just lift it takes a bit of technique but believe me it is simple, I`d be learning about the power delivery of that bike if I were you and worry about wheelies latter on. Try and power wheelie that bike from about 8000 and you will be off the back of it in a heartbeat.

I wasnt intending to go stupid on it and I do give it alot of respect, I just thought through normal acceleration the front would want to climb a bit...
