On start up the abs light flasher and you ride the bike for +-1km before the light goes off. Can the abs pump work but no abs brakes until the light goes off?

ABS on this bike is controlled by a ECU that can not function until you have primed the system. By rotating the front wheel the system is started. Some ECU's will require a longer start, ie, 10/30 revolutions. This means you only have "full" braking power after this point. A masterly lack of foresight on BMW's part is where a rider may start on a hill and use the combined brake system before it is primed, it can only be primed in an unbraked rotation. the result-no brakes to speak of! BEWARE!!!!

Yes, that is completely normal. The ABS does a self test and extinguishes the light when it sees wheel speed information from both front and rear wheels.
Nothing to worry about unless the light fails to go off.
