Hi All,

I am coming from a BMW which requires a special battery charger/tender to maintain the battery. Does a 2016 Multistrada require the ducati tender/charger or can I use a battery tender Junior?

Thanks in advance.

I'm not 100% on the Multi but if there is a battery tender connection under the seat it's bound to be the Ducati specific one like the rest. You can buy a Ducati to SAE adapter cable on Amazon that will allow you to use a Battery Tender/Battery Tender Junior though

The Ducati dealer here in Sydney installs the Junior by default. So I’d be quite confident in stating that no special Ducati one is needed.

I'm using a BT bought at Costco, on my 2016 Multi PP. The terminal was installed at the dealership. It work as intended.

i use the standard battery tender. more durable and you can use it in other bikes too. just add the included pigtail by connecting it directly to the battery.

You can buy more pigtails for your other bikes.

The mts unlike the monster battery is easily accessed through the seat.

Good luck

I've used the Tender Jr for all my bikes, including the MTSE, and have not had any issues.

wondering if the multi has this ducati-specific connection. i already added a pigtail to the battery, but curious anyway.

My '13 came from the factory with that connection.

I also have the optimate for
my monster 12. battery is hard to access thus I connected this to my monsters ducati plug under the seat
