The small batteries are a weak spot with bikes. Starting it and running a little won't charge it enough.
When ever in doubt about the battery power, jump it with a non-running car battery or strong jumper box, and if it fires up quickly that is the place to start.
A new battery.
A battery maintainer is a small maintenance charger that helps a battery but doesn't charge more than 1 or 2 amps.
Some of the guys with the same bike can help in more detail.
