Shouldn't be.
Put it on a 2 amp charge and se if it will come up.
You can bring the battery by and I'll load test it for you, no charge.

Sometimes when batteries go into deep discharge they can not be recovered. Trickle chargers will not even bring it back to life. This primarily occurs when its been drained to the point that the lights/instruments wont even come on. Basically the chemical reaction has been taken so far that it can't be reversed again.

Always a good idea to have a battery tender on a bike that you don't run often (every couple weeks) for this exact reason (I learned the hard way) because even when its off there is leakage current that will drain the battery to point it can be recharged.
