As BB sed; Applying the rear brake pedal, applies the rear and 1 front.
                Applying the front brake lever, applies all the brakes and the abs will prevent rear wheel lock up..

If your using front or back, and you add the other,,,,, you will feel a rapid increase in braking.
That "rapid" increase doesn't work as smoothly as the progressive increase you get with just the front lever. 

Notes: Your 2016 has better front/rear linked braking control than my 2014.
           You can still use rear pedal only for parking lot maneuver's if you choose.

At least give it a try.. With practice, you'll grow to like it.
  As you normally use both, learning to use 1 "will" take some practice.
  Trust me; If you have a panic stop, your muscle memory "WILL" engage the rear.

Ride safe, Ted

Thanks guys
   I rode the dragon and the foot hills parkway to pigeon forge and doubled back  sat and then yesterday rode Gatllinburg to the foothills and through the dragon. This Time we rode the dragon at 9:30 pm .. weird to go through there in the dark.  I riding with my wife so I can't really test to well yet . I mostly use the front trailing into the turns and ease off as I start to add power.

Ride it quiet often too .  The new foothills parkway has some amazing views and we got to see the sun set on the highest overlook.

'15 & up also have 2 ABS modes. From the Owners Manual:
K-ACT ABS Mode Indicator
(Mode 1/2)
There are two K-ACT ABS modes (mode 1, mode 2) where braking effort is different depending on individual taste or running conditions.
Standard Mode (Mode 1):
Link effect on the front brake is lower than mode 2 from the initial to mid rear brake pedal stroke. Best suitable on winding roads.
High Combined Mode (Mode 2):
Link effect on the front/rear brake is heightened from the beginning of the rear brake pedal stroke. Best suitable for touring, carrying a passenger, and the expressway.
• Push and hold the K-ACT ABS button to switch the K-ACT ABS Mode.
(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)
NOTE
􀅼The mode can only be changed when the vehicle stopped.
􀅼The mode setting is maintained the
ignition switch is turned off.

I put in Mode 1 & forget about it...
