I'm going to assume the steering is locked as well.
Two things usually hand Kaw's up like this. 1 - make sure wheel is 'free' - NOT against stop (lock_ 2 - jiggle the key up/dwn left/rt while trying to remove it
In the future use graphite on lock mechanisms. Oil attracts grit and gums up.

Sounds like the insulation on some of the ignition wiring is worn through, and on full lock is making electrical contact with ground.

Hello, you have tried all the things that would help, one other thing you can try is get a new key cut (from your existing key), what happens is the sides of the key actually wears out and this also affects the operation, its not guaranteed but it may help. Also try pushing the key in as you twist and pull it out a fraction and twist. Being a new bike this should not be happening, also after you spray the WD40 if you have access to a air compressor, blow the the key hole out, you may have to hold the hole open with a fine screw driver, there may be dirt stuck in there. If all fails than a master lock smith will be your last solution.
