The sidestand switch will also stop the bike from starting in gear.
Since it's a trike, either the switch was eliminated or if the side stand was removed, the existing switch may be out of position.

Check and manipulate your kill switch, it's not uncommon they're brushed to kill position inadvertently or just worn or dirty and preventing start.
