Probably just the brake pads rubbing on the brake disc. Nothing to worry about IMO unless it seemed excess. Mine does it occasionally.

+1. Mine does it too. It's the pads rubbing the rotor.

Just a heads up you will hear the same thing when slowing down and not quite but almost at a stop. It will sound like a "Whooshing" sound...woosh woosh woosh woosh.... I asked the dealer about this and they told me that its just the pads on the rotors. When your under breaking and almost to a stop alot of the rider weight is shifted to the front of the bike, the added weight cause's the pads to rub the rotors.
