My wife rides an 03 FJR and I know the FJR's thru 05 do not have cruise control either standard or as an option (I don't think 06 has it either). We put a ThrottleMiester on her bike, but that's just a throttle lock, not true cruise.
There are aftermarket kits available, some work better than others. Many people have adapted automotive aftermarket cruise controls to their FJR, but what I dislike about this is you have to hit the brakes to dis-engage the cruise. On a real motorcycle cruise control you should be able to just roll off the throttle to dis-engage.
I can't speak for Yamaha as to why they didn't include cruise, but having an FJR sitting in my garage I can tell you it's more sport bike than touring bike... but it is a blast to ride!
