You cannot prevent fork drive when braking with USD or RSU forks, if you want to have a bike w/o brake dive get a BMW.
If the front end is too soft, you need to lose some weight because I am not small and this bike has pretty stiff springs, consider something else. Alternative solution is to make PVC spacers for the fork springs, low tech but it does work.
