Sounds like you might have a faulty switch/sensor. There's the BAC (bank angle sensor) on the nose of the upper, between the headlights and multi display, and the kickstand switch. If either of those were to become disconnected, even momentarily, it would kill your bike.
If you don't have one, you can download tha Service Manual here: LINK.
On a side note, if you just picked up that bike, it wouldn't be a bad idea to do a tune-up.

It could be your idle being set too low, try raising it a bit and see what happens. I remember my bike would die too, but after adjusting the idle it ran great afterwards.
