Help with 2017 T100

I'm hoping someone might be able to help. Just went out to take my T100 out for my first ride of the year and it wont start. I charged up the battery last night but went to start it and got nothing. It's a 2017 with less than 700 miles. Anybody have any ideas what the problem could be? I'm not very mechanically inclined so hopefully it's nothing too serious. Thanks!

Yes bike is in neutral, battery is fully charged and clutch seems to be working just fine. I'm not sure what else to check.

Is the battery holding charge? Can you check voltage?
Checked fuses?

I found my horn wasn't working, and the dealer ended up replacing the entire wiring harness via warranty from Triumph about four months ago. I wasn't able to get the exact details, but there was apparently a routing issue when assembled that caused the wiring harness to pull tight when not a full lock. The horn not working was apparently just a warning and thankfully I didn't need to pay a cent of the $1k they'd have charged. They told me one guy with a Speed Twin was having his bike die and need to be shut off before it would restart (or something of that nature), so I was wondering.

I also just got a recall notice for replacement of the head stock tidy that could be causing a malfunction of the turn signals, headlight and/or engine stall. Sounded a lot like work I already had done, but when I called, they still said to bring it in. Now I'm really wondering.

Not terribly thrilled about going in again already, but I do love my bike. Nothing I can offer to help, but could be you've got similar issues.

It's just an updated bracket to keep the clutch cable from rubbing on the main wiring harness. Hopefully it prevents any future wiring issues.

Try using fresh fuel - modern fuels with ethanol are not very good when left for a while.

Check the obvious....Kill switch in the right position? (guilty of this one) Clutch in? Kickstand up? Neutral?
