The Rostra or Audiovox work well. They are the same unit, just branded differently. You want the electronic version, not the vacuum version.

I'm 99% sure MC cruise do a plug & play system for your bike but they are not cheep.

I have one on my V2 and it works great, it has saved me form many speeding tickets so has paid for itself.

"it has saved me form many speeding tickets so has paid for itself."

I find that riding within a few MPH of the speed limit does the same with the Go Cruise.
but on those little back roads in the Midwest it's best to be even more diligent about the posted limit.

Once I do my suspension upgrades, I am seriously thinking of going with that CC system.

Cruise control

I doubt MC Cruise completely plug and play, but you will get install support that relates to your motorcycle. The Rostra/AudioVox only has support from this forum and ADV. Cost for Rostra with control panel 300-400. Cost for MC Cruise is around 800-900. The MC Cruise looks like a more refined product, but my experience is with the Rostra/AudioVox system. Both are game changers for long rides with sore right wrists.

I think your pricing....needs updated! Rostra Cruise Control and the Switch Module.

$212

That should be enough to get started. You will have to fab up a bracket to mount the switch module, or mount it on a flat surface.
