DIY USB outlet

Recently purchased 2011 K1300s bike.
Upon opening the battery cover have discovered an unprovided USB outlet which is connected to the bikeís wiring system.
Anybody knows what was the original equipment connected to this black/white connector?
There are 3 wires coming out from the white side, any idea whet they might be?

I bought the adapter cable that plugs into that socket and attached a USB outlet to it.

what does the open end of the connector look like? Is it actually a USB socket, or something else (eg a DIN standard socket)?

I bought a dashboard mounted usb charger (a cylinder that screws in like a cigarette lighter) and attached it to the adapter.
I just stuck the usb charger on the back of the lights with some silastic.
The adapter is a connecter with a red and a black wire about 300mm long.

I have a USB adapter that attaches to the SAE plug for my Battery Tender that's connected to the battery.
