I was planning on buying new and went throught the same thought process because I liked the looks and lighter weight of the F6b so much. In the Deluxe model there is ABS so that was no longer a difference between it and the Wing. What made the difference for me was that I often ride with a passenger. Were I in the position of not needing comfortable passenger accommodations I would have bought the F6b instead of the new Wing that I actually bought. However, now that I have the GW, I would not ever want to give up the Cruise Control. I find I use it all the time, other than stop and go urban riding (which I try to avoid). If someday I don't have a regular passenger, and if Honda made the F6b with Cruise, I would certainly consider it.
