Omero Aluminum Gas Tank

I've been inquiring into an Aluminum fuel tank from Omero in Italy & I was wondering if anybody has bought one of these from them?
If so has was the fit & finish on it & were you happy with the product?
They claim it is slimmer then the stock configuration so that combined with the aluminum look has me intrigued but it's been sorta hard to correspond with them as my italian isn't very good & neither is their english.
Hopefully someone here has a real world experience with one.

The Omero tanks are works of art. Fit and finish is tops. Looks, well, like a work of art.

As an alternative, there will be a similar sized tank coming through normal parts channels by May/June, that will likely cost you less money than the Omero tank.


I hope this help

Thanks for the insight.I'm aware of the factory option in the future but the aluminum is well aluminum.
I just don't want to drop the coin & then be disappointed with the fit & finish which it sounds like I won't be!

damn vintage

my mates met the eyeties (mates we do the oktoberfest in munchen with) over at modena 6 weeks ago and they came back here for the england v italy rugby match 9 days ago. could have got one to here and brought it to Moab as hand luggage!

never mind....

Would've been interesting trying to board a plane with a petrol tank!
I'm still debating pulling the trigger.Sure does look sleek in pics & the aluminum looks like it's a good fit on the Berg
It's a lot of Euros for shipping though.

RE: Omero Aluminum Gas Tank

here's a question, why did older bikes go from alloy/steel to plastic tanks to begin with. If there was a good reason I would pass on the alloy if not then woohoo.

I collected my 06 look Omero tank yesterday

Did not buy it from Italy but from Daniel Persson, one of the Husaberg WEC guys from last year (he will not enter the full WEC this year unfortunately). It is laying in my Renault Master outside work right now. Will go to the garage after work to get it on the bike.

So far I'm actually not all that impressed, some of the welding looks not "factory" and so on. But it has been raced all around the world for an entire year as well as in the ISDE last year. So some battle scars are acceptable
Filled it up with water yesterday in my kitchen to see exactly how much it holds - 6.9l !!

I'll post my thoughts tomorrow after mounting it.
