The electric starter system uses a clutch with a one-way bearing that is worn out. A new one costs around $150 or so, not sure how much labour is involved.

You can buy the one way bearing by itself but it's possible that you'll need the outer housing that the bearing runs inside of. This part wears along with the bearing and it's always better to replace both as a matched set. If the bearing doesn't engage properly, then the problem will still remain. That's why the price is higher and Honda sells these parts together.
