It shouldn't be difficult to get that kind of plug/ socket from an auto electrical store, and they generally come with the lugs. If you can't buy an identical type, a similar one with the same number of pins will do. Before you cut anything check that the wires are the same colours in both male and female. It is common practice on bikes (cars too) to change wire colour at a plug/ joiner and failure to check/ record said changes can result in headaches. You'll also need a jewellers screwdriver or specialist tool to remove crimp lugs from the new plug/ socket.
You'll need to cut the wires back, just make sure there is enough slack in the loom that when you cut and bare the wire, there will be enough to plug them back together. Make sure you have shiny copper wire as it can be burnt back inside the insulation, which gives a poor connection when the lugs is crimped on. Double check when the wires are in the new plug/ socket that they are a match for the original Honda wiring. You wouldn't be the first, or the last, to make that mistake.
All the best with it.
