there are very few ways your bike can lose ALL electrical power (ignition, lights, accessories)

the only possible causes are:

- bad battery.

- loose/bad battery cables (your bike has 3)

- bad main circuit breaker.

- faulty charging system (causing fault with battery or main circuit breaker)

- fault in ignition switch/ignition switch harness (very rare)

these are the most common causes.
