Founded by Steve and Lester Harris in 1972, Harris Performance Products has long enjoyed a reputation for both high performance and superb build quality. In the mid-1980s the company was one of the first to introduce the now almost universal twin-spar aluminium chassis, initially developed to house a Rotax tandem twin and supplied to Decorite and EMC among others.

In the case of the machine offered here, one of Harris's signature aluminium beam frames is wrapped around a Yamaha FZR1000 EXUP engine. Dating from an era when one-litre sports bikes could afford to be relatively roomy and comfortable, Yamaha's FZR1000 Genesis had arrived in 1987 as the class leader, boasting the FZ750's pioneering five-valves-per-cylinder engine technology and a race-developed aluminium twin-spar 'Deltabox' frame. With a maximum output of 125bhp, the Genesis was good for a top speed of over 150mph and had handling and brakes to match.

It lasted for only two years before being replaced by the extensively redesigned 'EXUP' model, which took its name from Yamaha's 'Exhaust Ultimate Power Valve'. Installed downstream of the headers, the EXUP was designed to boost mid-range power while at the same time making it easier to meet noise and emissions targets. It certainly worked, but while the 1989 EXUP was stronger low-down than its predecessor, it made no more power than the '88 version because Yamaha had fitted restrictive 'weirs' in the carburettor stubs. Using a Stanley knife, Bike magazine removed the weirs from 'their' EXUP and found an additional 19bhp!

This Harris-framed FZR1000 was in a dismantled state when purchased from the previous owner at The Classic & Motorcycle Mechanics Show, Stafford in October 2007. Currently resident in Italy, the machine is offered with a copy of its most recent V5C. However, it should be noted that it is logged as 'permanently exported' with the DVLA. Accordingly, prospective purchasers should satisfy themselves with regard to the status of the registration 'Q924 NST' before bidding. The successful purchaser will need to apply to the DVLA for a replacement V5C Registration Certificate.
