Yeah right!
Come on.... all lights of the dash would be on if kill switch is pressed... and this is the same on all KTM motorcycles.

Repeat the spark test and do it properly. Take the ignition cable off and put a sparkplug into the plug and hold the spark plugs thread against the engine block, start and see if theres a healthy blue spark, repeat for second cylinder.
You could also check the kill switch, meaning measure it with an Ohmmeter and check if your bike is equipped with an roll-over switch which might be the reason why your bike didnt fire up before the battery mess. Even if your battery is brand new, take another one for testing... Try to get an ECU from a mates bike or someone in here for testing...

Good luck
