Borrowed this snippet from Road Riders post:

"The two plastic side covers to the right and left of the tank come off easily by means of rapid catches. "

Would be very interested to see how it looks without those plastic bits...

Plastic...........?

.............apparently not......?

The tank is plastic, the side panels 'thin aluminium'......

The official story is here:

Plastic tank with side covers

The 20-litre fuel tank on the R1200 GS is made of special, extra-light and impact-proof plastic. Two side covers made of thin aluminium and a painted top cover give the tank its special shape and look. Appropriately slender towards the rear, the tank offers good knee and leg support when riding off-road..............

Tank

I think you will agree the tank looks a pisser without the panels. Probably to cover up the side thingy's in the tank
