did you check for spark at the spark plug end of one of the plug wires if not start there if you have no or little spark check for bad coil wire or hole in rotor
i would assume this is fuel injected do you see fuel spraying out of the injectors with the air cleaner off have you tried spraying carb cleaner down the throttle body to see if it starts. if it does suggest checking fuel pressure , injector pulse.
if all the above seems ok suggest a compression test.
