Just received my cb650r 2021 abs today and I can't seem to find where is the STANDART usb-c under the seat.
Looked for a few minutes now and I don't see any connector or usb.
Is it a option or just missing on my bike, maybe I'm just blind?

Thanks in advance for your answers!

I'm interested in this as well, I was under the impression that it's under the rider seat, but I haven't pulled it off to take a look.
But I will this evening.

I've searched around and apparently Canadian models don't get it, only European models have it at standard!

Well that's a bummer, I had the seats off over the weekend and didn't see it either. Didn't really look for it though, as I was just disconnecting the battery.

I did see a little rubber cover over two plugs under the seat that are just sitting there. I'm guessing one of those is what will be used for the USB-C. I'd have to check it out and pop open the caps on them.

I have a 2021 CB and the North American models do not have the USB-C connector nor do they have the emergency stop signal(flashing brake light under hard braking). Pretty disappointing as these are standard on Euro models.
Under the throttle side tail cover there is an accessory plug but the only available Honda accessory is a cigarette type socket. ACCESSORY SOCKET Part # 08U70-MKN-D50

You could probably source the usb-c plug from Europe if you really wanted too. The Europeans get more accessories even have different packages available for purchase. They can be found on the UK Honda site. Wish Honda was more invested in here in NA.

Yeah, it's always disappointing to see we get less of the packages and options for our Moto's here. I would've loved the other color options for the CB also, but of course we only get one.

Hi, its not that they are more invested in EU market compared to USA/CAN. It will be to do with legislation and laws. I work for a car manufacturer and there are different laws all over the world for vehicles, some quite strange, but have to be adhered to! hence the differences.
