Giles Testing YZF-R1

Who/what is HPS?
Founded in 1999 (a subsidiary of a family business trading since 1955) , HPS is now one of the best known motorcycle accessory retail brands, both UK and worldwide.

From small beginnings we are proud to have built our business based around excellent service and product knowledge, combined with competitive prices and, in addition to our retail operations we now also distribute some key high-quality lines in the UK too.

Who is behind HPS?
Originally the idea for HPS came from the directors of GHC, Giles and Anne Harwood, but behind HPS is a dedicated team operating in areas of pre-sales support and advice, purchasing, warehouse, despatch and after-sales support whose aim is to ensure that all HPS's customers receive the best service there is.

HPS was conceived by the founders after they had been disappointed for many years at the poor standards of service constantly received when buying parts for their own bikes.

Their belief was, and still is that many bikers get poor advice, poor service and poor after sales help too often when trying to improve their bike's performance, handling or looks.

Giles said 'I started building motorcycles (against my parents' wishes) from old parts I begged from my mates' elder brothers when I was eleven years old. Eventually upon leaving school my dream came true when I got the job as an apprentice motorcycle mechanic in a local dealership. After about a year in this job, though, I was persuaded to further my education which I did by enrolling on a three year full-time automotive engineering and management course. Just after graduating from this course, I thought I was about to rejoin the motor/bike trade full time when the opportunity arose to start the computer business which took me down that path for 18 very enjoyable years.

The computer business had grown to a turnover of approaching £10m, the most part of it transacted by mail order, with, we are told, an unrivalled reputation for the highest quality service (60% of our turnover each month is from customers who come back to us repeatedly).

The sophisticated systems we have developed over many years to ensure our computer customers throughout the UK and world-wide receive this high quality of service lend themselves equally as well to the supply of performance parts for motorcycles.

We are always delighted to talk to anyone, whether a customer or not, about anything to do with their bike, or bikes in general and HPS (whether they've received good or bad service) or discuss any ideas about how we can improve.
