It is both.  25L in the US and Canada.  26L elsewhere.  Page 1.34 of the US service manual.

Never noticed that, its just one of those things that makes you go Hmmmmm.  I wonder if there something on US and Canadian bikes that isn't on those shipped to the rest of the world that affects capacity.

I have wondered that too. My Suzuki DR200SE fuel tank  is .3L less than as sold in other states. Even though I purchased it in Nevada, it is a California model (purchased too close to CA border!). But I have noticed the .3L less in many cases for CA. Since CA has the most cycle riders of any state, I assume many make all their bikes for the USA smaller by that amount. I have always assumed it had something to do with making room for some CA approved smog stuff, but I have no idea what that  could be. I am curious to find out as well.

More than likely, it's emissions control equipment taking up room.

25L is more than what I need.  I'm not gonna top off the tank most of the time anyway.

I've seen some squirrely stuff with things labeled "50 State Legal"

I wonder if it is something that is inside the tank. I also wonder if it can be removed and get more capacity, such as with my Suzuki which is NOT supposed to be a CA model anyway. Just that CA is too close to Reno and they get CA models shipped to them. It has a NV plate, so it should even be legal to remove.

I always like fuel tanks to be as large as possible. The range of the TTSE is what made me decide to buy it. There are many places that are more than 150 miles between gas stations in parts of NV.

They are actually two different part numbers, one for US&CN, one for all others.  On microfiche sites, both look like the same Klingon warship.  Dunno if ours is packin' an EPA cloaking device.

I agree bigger is never a bad thing, especially one that is made of plastic and not weigh much.  Guys like me can always not top off.  Those who need it... great!  :169:
