battery needs to be LOAD TESTED. sounds like its takin a dive headfirst into the empty pool.
jump the starter solenoid (between the posts on the solenoid) and see if the bike turns over. if it does then the solenoid is dead.
i would still do the LOAD TEST on the battery. (car shops/parts stores etc. have the equipment to do this for you)
i dont want you try to jump START it. i just wanted to know of it cranked over by jumping the posts on the starter solenoid. if it turns over by jumping the solenoid then the solenoid is bad (does the solenoid click when you push the starter button ?)
did it crank over when you jumped the terminals on the starter solenoid with a screwdriver ?
