And it's a true Strada? Like not a Motard conversion? That sounds very unusual.

Looking in the owner's manual, there is a factory installed connector for a battery tender, but it is not SAE. The DP battery tender comes with a pigtail adapter for this connector to SAE.

I'm wondering if you can get this pigtail without buying the whole DP tender?

I can't find that plug on my bike. But those two factory-installed receptacles are definitely switched with the ignition. I just checked my bike with a voltmeter to verify this. If you buy a Tender, it comes with the SAE connector. It even has its own fuse. It costs less than half of what the DP one does. And if you look at that link, it says it comes with a US (SAE) plug, not the Euro (BMW) one. Nowhere does it claim to be compatible with the receptacles on the Strada.

Those BMW plugs are for GPS and heated gear, not a trickle charger. Why reinvent the wheel?

All I know is I plug my Tender into the SAE connector near the rear strut and I get appropriate charging indication and eventually the cycle complete/trickle lights.

Sounds like your dealer just routed it to a different spot. Mine is on the RHS in the crook of the subframe where it bolts to the main frame.

It's not easy to get to the battery, it's in a rubber boot. But a direct fused connection is really the way to go.
