Clunking noise from front end on new CBR600

question is about a 2016 CBR 600rr.

When going over rough roads - brick roads in neighborhoods at 15-20mph - the front end will clunk when it hits a significant bump. You can almost feel it in the handlebars. It sounds dull and clunky, not a metal dinging noise.

I haven't touched the forks. I'm not sure if they are too soft and bottoming out or what. Any ideas? Is this normal?

I've had that happen before (oddly enough also on a CBR600). It was the brake lines smacking the front fender when I was either hard on the brakes or hitting a bump.
