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.
