On paper my '07 FJR was not extravagant with features or technology...but turned out to be one of my favorite bikes of all time just from being so very good at everything.
One of the most competent and pleasing rides I've owned. I put a little over 34k miles on it in a bit less than two years - all trouble free and fun.

Very sporty for a bike of it's type, lots of range, extremely low maintenance, and comfortable out of the box.

My only complaint was it's meager alternator output for running aux lighting and heated gear, etc.

With a few nicely chosen upgrades, it would be a great choice to do again - it surely didn't need a clean sheet redesign, just a freshening up.
