this has been a problem since day 1 .
There is not the 'normal' adjustment that are on most other bikes.

Of course, we don;t know why it's so low; but is it possible that the engineers did this to have us focus more on the use of the front brake?
How about a riser ? Maybe a pice of profile aluminium. This would be my solution.

Pedal free-play is correct?

Something that might help is upgrading the rear pads from organic to EBC HH pads if they're available. I recently switched from EBC HH to Organic rear pads on my 2010 R1200RT, and it's a dramatic difference. I literally have what you all describe as too much travel, but I will be switching back to the EBC HH pads. It's a trade-off with respect to disc wear vs better bite/stopping.

I just put a riser on the pedal, problem solved. Google it.

Like I mentioned in my reply. Is it a homemade riser? I do one for my wife's G310R. Like a sandwich with a flathead screw on the top. Maybe show a picture so we can copy it.

there are two versions so far, 15mm and 25mm, i am adding another 35mm as my fastway footpeg positioned a bit too high, on the downhill it was very hard for me to operate the brake.
I have found a riser on Aliexpress, rubber top and a plate thats fits underneath with a couple of bolts
