OEM battery.
Check the fuel pump and fuel pump wiring. Mine gummed up after sitting for a while. People complain of stalling and such and the fuel pump could be the culprit yet every body points at the battery. The batteries were intially bad but if a new one was installed I would move on. The blended fuels seem to cause problems if these bikes aren't ridden. Yours with 5700 kilometers is not even broken in yet and being a 2007 probably sat for a while. Maybe somebody here knows how to clean a fuel pump that is gumbed up with gasoline additives. A new BMW pump is expensive but there are probably auto pumps that would work. This is just an opinion as I am no mechanic.
