'16 and Prior owners respond to stock suspension

wondering just how goofy the '16 stock suspension is. I have a potential to pick up a 16 at a good price and Im not dead set on TC and ABS as I dont have now and handle it fine. BUT I dont want to spend alot to fix a hokey suspension. Im a 220lb or so rider and wondering if it is really as bad as people and review say or what are your experiences with it.

The front end dives under hard braking, but if you aren't at a track everyday you'll probably be fine. The bike is an awesome value so you could put some money into the suspension later on. I'm 180 lbs btw.

I am an 185lbs, 5,10 talk and rear suspension is pain in the butt, I realized the bike is much better after swapping the rear with Zx6r shock, front end still dive under hard braking as other mentioned but isnít that bad.
