Yamaha R3 doens't start

Hi all riders!

Was riding my bike for over 3 weeks without any problems.
Two days ago, the bike doesn't want to start for some reason.
The display is on, fully charged battery with tight connectors, side support is up.
When I press the start button, nothing happens, no sound, absolutely nothing.
I have tried turning the key and the handlebar at least ten times and touching the cables at the ignition switch and gas, no results

The only thing I remember was that the startup engine started once and then it became as described above.
Has enough fuel and killswitch is not on.
It could possibly be the starter motor or spark plugs.
It has barely travelled over 350km.
I can recordi a Youtube clip if you want to see it?

Does anyone have experience or suggestions on what I can do?

Had been greatly appreciated!

A stupid question, but is the bike in neutral?
What year is your bike? Do you have a battery charger? Do you have an R3's owner's manual?

Yes, it is neutral and have tried to start it in gear as-well.
2015.
I have a battery charger and manual.
However, I have fully charged the battery and tightened the connectors.

I will try to jump start the motorcycle to see if it really is the start engine.
If it is, I can't believe it can break after such a low mileage.

I doubt the starter's bad. Rolling off/Jump starting may work. I'm just throwing out ideas so.. Is this the original battery? Have you tried starting the bike with the battery charger hooked up and charging?? Also in you manual page 7-31 and 32. See the starter relay, make sure the wiring harness is seated good. Also, between the seats under a panel with 2 screws is the fuse box on the left. Fuse box #1 fuse is for the "ignition". 15Amp, spares on the side if it's blown. It could also be a safety switch bad or misaligned.. clutch lever has one, also a switch associated with side stand. Good luck. Keep us up on progress.

Do you hear the fuel pump prime when you turn the key? Kind of dumb but I've seen it before, people don't flip their kill switch to on before starting their bike. It's fun to watch.
