OEM cruise control

I remember a couple years back I was in a Honda dealership and I was asking about the lack of factory cruise control on Jap bikes. There was talk that the Japanese manufacturers may have legal/liability issues and want to stay away from OEM cruise control. A dealership employee thought the Gold Wing was the only Jap bike that offered it. I haven't seen a ST1300 and don't know if you can get it on that bike ( I'd bet not) The FJR doesn't offer it and I'm pretty sure the new Kawi won't offer it either. The only HD bikes that offer it is the Ultra Classic, Roadglide and one Roadking model.. Last spring at a Bike show, a HD dealership owner was present with the new Streetbob and Streetglide on display. He was asked if those bikes could be factory ordered with cruise and he said no, but the dealership could install for about 450-500 bucks. I wouldn't be surprised if all of a sudden OEM cruise controls become unavailable.
