If the starter is turning over the engine then it is probably a spark, air of fuel issue. You can do a couple of things to troubleshoot it. If you suspect the ignition (spark plug, ignition coil ) then you can always pull out the plug and ground it, when you try to start it you should see a spark. Make sure the fuel filter on your fuel pump isn't clogged. Check air filter etc.

Was unable to get a lithium battery locally. Spoke to shop owners and they say demand simply don't justify them spending the money. I got a conventional gel battery and the bike is better than new. Thank you very much for the valuable advice.

I went the battery route first before going that direction and I was very lucky that, so far, the problem seems to be sorted, but thank you for your advice.
