Even with the weight difference they shouldn't be that mushy. I have driven heavier bikes than the CC that had better brakes.

Is it a brake bad issue or actual brake design?

Probably neither. Mine were a bit soft but I did a quick bleed and they are perfect now.

The brakes are actually better than they may feel in the grip. Lockup is relatively easy to accomplish indicating there's plenty of braking power but they modulate well so there's a lot of movement between firm and locked. Sometimes too much power equals less safe brakes as they lock to easily and are difficult to modulate at the limit.

I find I use 1 or 2 fingers 90% of the time and have never had an "ah ****" moment under some pretty hard braking.

I still miss my H-D ABS......
