I was perusing the owner's manual for my '02 M750D this afternoon, and I noticed that the manual appears to think the Dark came with a plastic 14L tank, whereas the non-Dark came with a metal 15L tank.

My magnetic tank bag and I agree that my Dark has a metal tank :) Anyone have a plastic tank, or was this just some craziness in the manual? I haven't gotten around to running the thing dry to see whether it's 14 or 15 liters yet.

Dirt bikes use plastic tanks and they're much more likely to be bouncing them off of rocks and things. I've never seen a punctured plastic tank on a dirt bike.

most if not all aprilia bikes come with non metal tanks . sounds like a wise decision to make the gas tank out of a non metal material

Buell uses plastic tanks too. They have a cover that goes over the tank, which would probably help with UV problems, and makes it really easy and inexpensive to change tank colors or get rid of damage.
