Looks like the T that is part of the carb vent system. There should be a hose that goes into that and into the rear of the right airfilter box.

The factory running of your missing hose, like KM says, goes into a spot in the back, rear of your right air filter box. There's a hole there that you just slide the hose through. Its put there so the open end of the hose can be in a "dead" air-space. A neat trick, that is highly suggested for you to do, is to trim that end of the hose at a slight angle so as to prevent an otherwise "flat" end from ever being able to wiggle over and bottom out up against the airbox and prevent any flow of air. The cut angle ensures that the hose is always open.

Do I have to have a hose there? Would not having one cause the bike to not run correctly?

It can, it will prevent proper venting of the fuel bowls, resulting in inconsistant levels of gas in the carbs. which in turn leads to crappy running
