I assume the kickstand is up, and the "red" toggle button is "on."

Any warning signals prior to the non-start? Any FI light/signal?

I'm new to the Versys, so just a guess here. Could the battery be weak?
Have you tried to bump start it? Key on, run switch on, maybe try get rolling and put it in 2nd gear drop the clutch and see if it starts?

check the kill switch position and try to start it in "neutral".
