Ducati Battery or Electric Problems

I haven't used the forum much, but I am running into an issue and don't know where else to go. I have a '15 899 with 10k miles. About a month ago I went to crank it up one morning and it wouldn't turn over. I had rode it the day before and it came up with no issues. This day it would click and lights would flicker so it made me think of the battery. I took the battery to get tested and it was bad. I purchased a new battery, Extreme Brand. Once installed it came up quickly with no issues. It appeared that the batter fixed everything. About a week or so later I took it out and about a 1/2 mile down the road my check engine light came on. The fuel light flickered about 3-4 times and then they both disappeared. I took it back home immediately. Since that day this started happening daily. The light would come on and disappear with no change in riding. The last day I rode it I was on it for about 20 minutes, I went in to a store for about 10 minutes, and when I came back out it turned right on but died as i took off. I was about to call a friend to come pick it up about 20 minutes of not getting it on but then it came back on and I rode it home with no issues. Does anyone have a clue about what this could be? I got the 7.5k mile service last year with no issues. Everything else is fine. Please help. The weather is getting nice and I don't want to miss any more beautiful riding days. Thanks in advance.

I would be checking to make sure all the battery cables and connections near the fuse box are all ok if that all checks out then it's gonna have be narrowed down within the harness.

I Ride: V4 S Corse '19
A bad fuel level sensor did the same to my V4: check engine light constantly on, fuel light flickering
dealer replaced it, no issues anymore

Ok will look at cables again but they looked fine earlier today when I looked again. May just have to take it to the shop.
