What is normal for tubed tire deflation if bike not used?

My wife has a Yamaha Fino with tubed tires, and I find if we let the bike sit for more than a couple of weeks, the tires go soft. In contrast, my PCX with tubeless tires can sit forever without losing any air in the tires.

Do I have a problem with the Fino, or is this normal behaviour for tubed tires?

My PCX never lost air

My Honda Wave, with larger upgraded Dunlop tires and tubes need air every week

Every time I fill up I check the tires and top off to 35 by the next week they are always down to 26 psi and need pumping up again

I found that the valve is often the source of the tires deflating. The standard valve which comes with the inner-tubes is often of low quality, replace the valve with something a bit better and the tires stay longer inflated.
