I ha d a similar problem, so try the following. Screw out the spark plug and check its function. If it gives spark only BEFORE and AFTER eletrical starter works (when you push+relase the starter button) it means you have a weak battery. It doesn`t have enough energy to rotate the starter and give spark at the same time.

Kymco people 150 when i push the starter button just a clicksound near the battery. The battery is brand new bike starts fine on a kick start.

The starter relay needs replaced. If you follow the + wire from the battery, it goes into a box with a + wire on the other side of it. If you jump power across the two wires, it should start

Charge your battery and if it runs until the battery dies again replace the Rectifier/Regulator. You will need a repair manuel for trouble shooting yourself. Or, you can spend 50. and have your local shop diagnose it for you.
