Can you see what hole it came out of on the bottom of the bike?

Whats it smell like? To help eliminate possibilities. All fluids have there own scent and color for the most part. Any accumulated dropplets coming from any of your drain tubes? but by the pic looks like oil to me.

I think you are right AB82. The oil level inspection window shows that it's out of engine oil. But how is this possible..
I got the oil change done at 600 miles and I just hit 1000 miles mark yesterday. No wonder why the dealership had such bad reviews on yelp. But what could be the cause of leakage?

Did you check all levels with the bike in an upright/vertical position?

What colour is the fluid? Wipe a sample on a sheet of white paper.

Which drain hose is it coming from? Check for drips from each hose with a crap of paper or cloth.

I agree with JimInOZ - make sure the bike is completely upright. The engine only holds 3 qts of oil, so even a slight lean will make the oil appear low or empty.

If the dealership is a bit shady, they might have screwed up when changing the oil. Take some paper and wipe around the drain bolt, see if it's coming from there. They might have reused the sealant ring on the drain bolt, or even not bothered putting anything back on there.

Honda uses drain plug washers....(part# 94109-12000) like lyoko said maybe it got reused which people do and can be fine but maybe it got bent or over tightened or not tightened enough at the drain plug...
But what is that stuff that looks like coffee grinds ? did that come from the bike?

Another leak to look out for is the radiator hose of which I’ve seen several complaints in the past.
This was an issue before any first services.

Keep an eye on any dried white residue on the rubber pipe.

Note’ the pic is only to point out the area of issue.
