If you're looking for a cafe racer that doesn't really scream "cafe racer," then this BMW G650 X Challenge Cafe Racer from South Africa's Hyde Designs could be right up your alley. Instead of going with a comfortable design, owner Jens Henkel, owner of the shop, reworked the bike and turned it into a retro-futuristic bike by stripping the original frame down and completely rebuilding it. With a combination of new and in-house custom parts, the team gave the bike an angular and sharp build with a matte black finish paired with a fiberglass tail. This very attractive bike is available now from Hyde for $13,200.
