Unknown connector... What's it for?

Messing with bike today and saw this in the storage compartment under rear seat... What's it for? Supposed to be plugged into something? Possible plug for battery tender being right by the battery?? Thanks

Holy tiny picture. There is a service connector on the bike, but on my sp2 it is green.

It's only a 2 wire plug looks exactly the same as where I plug my trickle charger in on my Harley but want to be sure what it is

Ya, it is not the service connector.... looks like an aftermarket add on, likely trickle charger....

Maybe battery tender...I also use the same connector for my electric vest, it does double duty.

Check if the end of that cable is connected to the battery posts.
As with the others, it is not OEM Honda, and is most likely the Battery Tender pigtail that connects to the matching connector for the charger.

I bought the bike as a one owner and the owner told me he did absolutely nothing to the bike, it was bone stock, so I wouldn't think it would be an aftermarket add-on

That is a two wire weather proof trailer connector.
There are no OEM connectors that look like that on a single Honda that I've worked on, trust me I've worked quite a few Honda's.

Ask the owner if he had a Battery Tender or electric vest I am 99% positive that it's either one...
