Easily one of the best chargers out there, though I would not hook it up to a lithium.
If you just are looking for a cheap tender the company "Battery Tender" makes one that can handle both types (I have 2 of these kicking around and they work very well) -- they also make good, cheap lithium batteries:

|Carlito||Lithium batteries are completely different in chemistry. Either you get a charger specifically designed for Lithium or remove the battery from the bike for long term storage. Lithium has a significantly slower discharge rate than standard batteries. I have a lithium Battery from my R1 which I sold in 2014 and the Battery still measures 13v I may need to check periodically but the key is specifically designed lithium charger.|

You likely have a stock battery on a previous generation bike, which means it is a lead acid.
Do you know how to take the seat off? Its usually two screws in the back along the rail.

My V4S came with one but Ducati does not supply a charger (they sell it as an accessory). I'm assuming BMW does the same.
