Most Batteries have enough juice to start cars. Just because they are new don't mean they are fully charged..Crank it and watch your gauge..it will read a little high then get back to 13-14 volts..

I agree with Shannon. Have alternator checked. Also a loose or corroded battery connection could cause the same issue. Also check frame and motor negative connection. If they are loose or corroded it will also cause this.
