Just came across this for sale post. https://www.apriliaforum.com/forums/showthread.php?345968-WTB-2017-18-RSV4-RF-tank&highlight=2017+fuel+tank

I thought the 15+ (16US) tanks would fit the 17+ machines?

I know 09-10 have no IMU or ABS cavity.
11-12 have older IMU cavity but no ABS cavity.
13-14 (15US) have older IMU cavity and ABS cavity.
15 16(US) have abs and newer style IMU cavity which is compatible with 17+ IMU and ABS cavity?

Any thoughts/corrections?

17+ the cutout for the gyro changed again....gyro is way smaller now

learned all about that putting a blue 16 tank on a 17......not easy, and that gyro is very sensitive to non-normal vibrations like making a custom bracket to make it fit under the seat that sits up too high.

Don't know if this helps but, according to this link https://www.af1racing.com/store/Scripts/prodView.asp?idproduct=77564&sku=2H001052000Z4&description=OEM+Aprilia+Fuel+Tank%2C+Matte+Silver+-2H001052000Z4 the 13'-16' RSV4 tanks are interchangeable and are the same as the tanks for the 14'-16' Tuono.

yes, all the ABS, non-TFT dash models = same tank

Thanks for the info. I was wondering because I noticed the 16 tank and the 17+ tanks both have that cavity within the cavity for the IMU and someone had mentioned they fit the 16 tank to a 17 machine. I've yet to see pics of the install though.
