Uneven tyre "profile" wear...

Hi all, I am a bit bemused by the tyre wear on my new V650LT.
After 1000 miles from new I noticed that the rear tyre is showing what I consider normal wear and most of the profile is scuffed as you would expect with normal riding. The front tyre, however, still sports its blue line (you know the line that is on a new tyre) and only about 80% of the profile has had any contact with tarmac. All my other bikes have worn across the tyre evenly both front and rear.
I am talking about the amount of contact the tyre has with the tarmac when cornering. Not the tyre wearing down.

Is this normal? The bike rides and handles fine.
