I might need to buy it back from H2W.
That's still one of the biggest fuel tanks offered for current big adventure bikes. Yamaha S10 has 23liters (261kg), BMW 1200GS 20liters (229kg) and Ducati MS1200 20liters (220kg). Only exception is BMW GS Adventure with 33liters (256kg).
That's enough for Europe and most adventure touring I can think of from my point of view. Of course it may be different for US and Australia.
