If you're a bit fed up with the slow evolution of BMW's R1200R, or if you already own one and fancy a visual change, check out German customiser Metisse's nifty new Cafe Racer conversion.

The R1200CR is available as a complete bike or a kit. Highlights include carbon-fibre bodywork, Classic wheels, sport handlebars, high-level exhaust, radiator cover, tank cover, mirrors, numberplate bracket and LED tail lights. A host of other optional bits are also available.

The CR costs 19,990 euros (about £15,950) plus shipping if you order the entire motorcycle box-fresh from a BMW dealer, or 5,990 euros (about £4,780) plus shipping if you just want to buy the kit and convert your R1200R yourself. 

The Cafe Racer will be displayed at Metisse's stand at EICMA 2012.

Please tell me that was a groan of despair and that your eyes are hurting!

I am stunned at how hideous it is.

No disrespect guys - beauty is in the eye of the beholder
