Which battery??

Hi all
My Bike has only 1050 miles amd most of the time is in charger. Today i was going to take her out and when i start the bike it took 3 times and the 4th time it looks like is has no power to stay on and as soon a s i give her a push gas then turned off.
Is this the battery issue is going down or fuel problem.
Thank you all

Only one battery should ever be installed in a BMW: Odyssey. Preferably with a metal jacket if room allows. Search.

+1 on the Odyssey, but you should not be having battery problems on a new bike.
Are you using the correct charger? See your dealer

3 years and only 1050 miles on the odometer. Shame on you.

Yes, you need a new battery. 3 years is my limit and I automatiocally get a new battery. The OEM battery just has not been ridden enough to "exercise" it and is losing its capability. Get the Odyssey anmd you will not have a problem after 3 years..
