Is it rubber molded with 2 contacts, one extended half an inch further than the other? If so its a power connection for adding a cigarette lighter style adapter or a battery conditioner connection.

Yeah. What VJ said. Take a picture, not too close, so we can see what you are looking at.

You've got me curious about the plug as well. Just went out to and looked at my 2011 XR and I have the same empty connection as well as two that are connected (a black one and a white one). Curious to see if the XC or XCT folks have the empty connection as well but I suspect it powers something for the XCT's.

Just went out and took a look at my XCT. There is a white plug there too, but it is plugged into something. Not sure since I didn't chase it down. There is also a black plug and another small white plug which are both connected to something as well. Maybe someone who also had a XCT can comment further.

I was at first thinking it had something to do with the optional reverse but I guess not. Has to be something like heated seats, trunk brake lights, etc related to the tour.
