Would a bigger bike be easier to wheelie?

I have a CRF150f (trail bike) and it's getting a bit small, so I plan on getting a CRF250r (race bike). Recently I've been practicing wheeling a bit and I can do pretty good wheelies from a standstill but as soon as I'm rolling, it gets way harder. I'm assuming more power would help. What do you

I have a CRF150f (trail bike) and it's getting a bit small, so I plan on getting a CRF250r (race bike). Recently I've been practicing wheeling a bit and I can do pretty good wheelies from a standstill but as soon as I'm rolling, it gets way harder. I'm assuming more power would help. What do you think? Regardless I'm getting a bigger bike, but I was just wondering.

Best Answer:

Kaden: Skill/technique will do more than displacement. But, yes having more than double the HP will help.

Other answer:

Kaden:
More power does help but you should be able to wheelie a 150 in 2nd or 3rd without to much problem, being to big for it can make it easier if you get right back. Remember push down before pulling up and use clutch.
Joe:
The 250 will be a major difference.
