Turn your handlebars slightly to take pressure off the steering lock and push the key inward as you turn it...

Well you need to verify the stuff already mentioned. Sparkplug, and coil etc.
The problem is likely the the coil and just needs to be replaced.
If the plug show signs of lean mix, it could have been that way for a long time (big headache).
If you just got the bike you need to kown something about troubleshooting to isolate the issue.
Makesure the oil is up. - too low could lead to a scrapped engine.
Makesure the oilpump is working.- no pump means no oil moving will lead to a scrapped engine.
Makesure you have the correct oil by doing an oil change. - bad, wrong, really old oil could mess the filter(clogged). Check filter for grit, metal, cream - if I have to explain why... then you need to give up trying to fix it yourself and pay/pay/pay for someone who has the skills to fix it for you.
If you must do it yourself, buy the Clymer manual and read.
Search the net and learn.
Get a friend to help show you how to troubleshoot the issue and fix it.

try the connections on the starter and the solenoid they could have corrosion which will affect the starter.if they are corroded just clean them up with a wire brush.

at the bottom of the engine on the brake side of the bike, around the gearbox, there's a look through window with a low level and a high level marked on it, the oil should be between those after it's heated, check it hot, let the engine run 3 minutes or so, you have to put the bike up right to correctly check the oil level, which means you'll need a friend to hold the bike up while you look at the level through the window, or you can use a brick or something under the kick stand to keep the bike more level, just be careful. To change the oil, you'll need to get an oil filter and 2.1 quarts (I think that's the right amount, it's 2000 ml) of 10w - 40 oil and then all the stuff to catch the old oil and funnels and rags and an allen wrench, I think it'll be a 4mm allen wrench, but I'm not sure on that, check with your bike, there are 3 allen wrench bolts that are holding a panel onto your gear box, behind this panel is your oil filter. Drain oil first before taking this panel off and changing your filter, there's bolt on the kickstand side of the engine at the bottom of the bike, it's sideways, this is the drain plug for the oil, it'll probably be hot so careful unscrewing it, take it out and the oil will pour out, but it's sideways so it's going to be messy, use a funnel or something to direct the oil into a bucket or container of some kind. after oil is drained, replace drain plug, now use an allen wrench and take off the panel on your gear box, pull out the oil filter, discard of properly, put the new oil filter in. put the panel back on the gear box. on the same side there's a black plastic turn screw cap that's where the new 2.1 quarts of oil goes in there. if you don't change the filter the amount of oil you use is less, put the plastic cap back on and you're done.
I reccomend taking it to a mechanic to do this, but, I'm going to do mine myself, I think I'm just going to add oil to mine, it's low, I have a 2008 Suzuki S-40 which is the same thing as a Savage, with just different badging.
I am not a professional or anything so, I'm just reading from the owner's manual that came with my bike. best of luck.

One down (first), four up.
Unless the box is toast... but you would hear it... it isn't exactly a new model - who knows how hard a life it has had...
