No power

I have a 2010 Iron 883... bought it last week from the dealer. Today I go to pull it out of the garage like normal. When to start it and mid crank everything just cut off and died. I haven't done anything to the bike so troubleshooting doesn't leave me much options. I put it on the charger, so when I turn the key to acc the lights at least come on now. When I turn it to ignition everything dies.

Anyone able to help??? I am going to leave it on the charger over night and see if that changes anything other than that I guess back to the dealership in the morning.

Check the battery with a voltmeter and see if you get 12.6V if so I'd check fuses next.

Sounds like a dead/bad battery.
If you can pull it out we can charge it properly and then load test it, free.

You sure it's not the key fob? I had a lowboy for a while and it acted the same way.

Vibration can cause plates to crack or move inside the battery. When they touch the battery loses capacity.
It may have enough juice to power lights but when you throw a load to it, nothing. The only option if that's the case is to replace.
Patrick's suggestion of a proper charge and load test will tell the tale.

Bad battery. I just had to buy new battery . Discharged old battery to low trying to jump start a friend's bike. Wouldn't hold a charge although it would charge up full. Turn the key and it's dead. Bet it's bad battery.

Check for loose cables, loose ground at the engine.

Guarantee the negative cable was loose on the battery.
Double check the engine side as well.

Thinking about changing the shocks/struts to try and get a better ride hopefully that will cut down on some of the ruff riding.
