Yes, the deals will start flowing soon, agreed. Having said that, though...
If you find the FJR, at the price you want to pay, now, then pull the trigger! I would rather be riding and playing for a month, than waiting to save an extra $100.
All in all, these bikes are really affordable, compared to many other brands.
When I bought Orion, in 2013, it was a 2006 with 36K on the clock. It came with a Corbin leather seat and OEM seat. Tour and OEM windshield, K&N filter, and an OEM Trunk. I gave $6,300 back then. Maybe a little more than I should have, but it got me in the saddle of an FJR, fulfilling a long dream I had. And I rode it out of the stealership, that day, and never regretted it.
Here it is 2020, and Orion is still amazing!! If I do upgrade, I will look at a 2016 or newer. But if I never upgraded again, I'll still be very happy!
Yeah, it does get hot, when the fans blow the rad heat back, but I used to ride a 1980 Yamaha XS11SG, air-cooled, and HOT!!! Especially in Texas!
Either wait, or buy now, and you are going to be a happy rider! I look forward to hearing and seeing your story!
The technological marvel that is the FJR, in my humble opinion, checks all the boxes that I want, when on 2 wheels!
