Here is a picture of it.
I have a new 2016 NC700x DCT ABS and I want to have power for a phone charger on my handle bars. I found a loose connector on my left front fork that has 3 power pins and what looks like a wide pin for maybe ground on it and it is just hanging there unconnected to anything. Honda can't help because it's not listed on the harness diagram. I see a clip next to what I think is the harness on the wiring diagram and it's marked number 25. I am guessing it might be Fog lights or maybe just an unused extra.
I was wondering if anyone has ever noticed this connector on a 2016 NC700X DCT and know what it is and where I can find the correct connector that goes to it. I could run power back to the battery for my iPhone jack but I would rather have it be switched power. If all else fails, when I remove all the plastics, I will just test these wire for power and go from there but I would rather use a Honda Harness for it.
If you look down behind the fairing just in front of the handle bars, you will see it tied to the left fork, pointing down with no cover.
Thanks in advance if anyone has any info on this.

It is for the heated grips. It has a ground and a main switch power plus some kind of signal line to the dash. (GRP HEATER)

Thanks for the info. I was able to remove a dummy plug, which is what you see in the photo but it's a kind of do it yourself plug to add wires to it. Of course there is no advertised way to get it to work as a real plug. It would have been a great power tap for my handlebar electronics.
Does that mean Honda makes a connector you can buy that fits it for the heated grips?
You’re apparently looking at diagrams for model years earlier than yours. 2015 and prior heated grips connect to the accessory harness. However, in the instructions for the 2016+ grips (linked below), I believe steps 33 and 34 shows the heated grip kit connecting to the 3P connector that you identified in the first post of this thread. That’s where the grips get their power and where the signal goes out to the combination meter. Refer to the wiring diagram on page 2 and note the wire colors for the 3P connector and compare to what you see on your bike.
Also note that this same pdf shows how to remove some of the body panels.
Yes, that does match better and uses the 3P connector. That explains a lot. Thanks
