My 2018 came with it fitted. I was told it was installed at the dealer. Was I charged for it? probably but it wasn't a separate line item on the invoice. A must have IMO where climate dictates storing the bike for months at a time.
...Furthermore, I have always plugged my bikes in...summer/winter. Became a habit many years ago. I found it extends battery life. no scientific data to back it up though.

Just to echo the rest.  Ive always used a battery tender with no negative effects that I know of.  Old man winter wreaks havoc on batteries here and Ill take the added insurance. I was stoked to see my bike came with the easy connector.

Any new battery tender will come with the harness you need, and if you need just the harness they are dirt cheap.
