Some owners like their BMW just like it came from the factory, but if you had your mind set on something a little different, something in the way of a cafe racer, Team Metisse has just what you’re looking for, the BMW R1200R CR.
The cafe racer is available from Metisse through your BMW dealer as a complete bike, but if you already own an R1200R, you can order the conversion kit, which consists of the carbon fiber front fairing and seat unit with bracket kits, seat undertray, front mudguard, heel guard, tank cover, cylinder guards, oil cooler cover, upholstery, tankpad, license plate bracket and LED tail light. There is a long list of extra options, too, so you won’t find your neighbor riding up on an exact copy of yours, not that there’s a big chance of that, but you never know.
No parts are harmed in the conversion, so you can reverse the whole procedure if you wish. About $25,500 for the complete bike or $7700 for the conversion kit.
