The battery should be reading at least 12v when not running and around 14 when running.
I'd first give it a charge or a boost. I'm guessing this should correct it.

If any of the lights work then the ignition switch should be fine.
The next to check is the kill switch in the on position.
Then is the bike in neutral and the side stand down? Did you also pull in the clutch?
There are usually safety switches in the side stand and clutch lever to prevent the bike from starting when not in neutral.
It's also worth checking the fuse box for any blown fuses, especially if no lights come on when you turn the key.

If all those seem ok, next would be be a stuck starter. Give it a light tap with a rubber mallet.

If none of these work let us know :)

The ZRX won't start with under voltage by design. It looks like you bought a lemon. I'll be happy to relieve you of it, as a favor of course.
