Welcome to the forum. It is my understanding that as the VStrom's brakes are not linked, like how they are on some Honda's, the ABS functions on only the tire that has locked up.
So no, it would only activate on the front if you were braking with only the front brake, and only the rear if you were only using the rear.
Note: I have actually had this happen to me, now that I think of it. I've had the ABS activate on only my front tire, when it locked up after I hit a blind bump in the road right as I was hard braking due to vehicles emergency braking infront of me. I didn't even have my foot on the rear yet, so it was only my front tire. The bump made the front jump enough that it lost traction, and when it came down, it activated. I corrected, added the rear brake, and it was all good.
