Vstrom brakes are quite wooden and don't give much feel.
Your rear brake should work like all rear brakes but as the wheel locks up the ABS will release the pressure then apply the pressure again over & over again.
You can test your brakes with out the ABS functioning by removing the 25a ABS fuse, your brakes should function like a bike without ABS.

Live life on the edge you will see more that way.
Ridding a motorcycle keeps things in balance.
At the end of each trail and at the end of each day history is made.
