Fli Distribution, the UK distributor to KTM, Puky, Eightshot and Ursus, has been hit with an overnight break in which saw around 20 bikes stolen.
Triggering an alarm in the early hours, owner Col Williams was able to see quickly on the firm’s CCTV three thieves ransacking his warehouse and making off with the bike fleet on a flatbed van. The distributor’s camera did catch the registration of the van in a trio of videos viewable here.
Despite police being on scene within eight minutes of the call the theft could not be prevented.
“Please keep your eyes out for these bikes. They are linked to listings, because they are all either unique custom builds or very rare. Hopefully with your help we can get some of these back,” wrote Williams this morning, listing the below bikes as ones to look out for.
“This is not a FLi stock bike, it belongs to a good friend and getting this special bike back is a priority,” he said of a stolen KTM Revelator Alto M13 – S / 52cm – custom build.
* KTM X-Strada 710 – M / 55cm – custom build
“This was finished on Friday, so we don’t have any photos of the finished bike – gutted! It’s a one off built for a member of staff, with purple Hope cranks and stem and Ursus T47 wheels (the only set in the UK!) with custom cut out orange graphics and Pirelli tan wall tyres. It’s gorgeous,” added Williams on the distinct bike.
The below bikes, were all boxed and taken from the warehouse:
4 x KTM Chicago Disc 271 ( 1 x Medium and 3 x Large) in black / blue
2 x Puky Steel Classic 18 – Retro Green (4338)
2 x Puky Youke 16 – Fresh Green (4235)
4 x Puky Youke 18 – Blue (4362)
3 x Puky LR XL Classic – Retro Green (4067)
