Take the spark plugs out and turn over the engine with the rear wheel while in gear to make sure the engine is still free.
Goog - the 650/700 starter will spin even if the kill switch is set to off when you jump the two big terminals together with an appropriate sized conductor. The power path for the starter is battery positive to solenoid to starter, without anything other than the solenoid interrupting it.
Only other electrical possibility is that the ground between the engine/frame and battery is shot. Everything else is going to be mechanical failure; bad starter, locked up engine.
