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.
