You didn't say what you intend to put the tank and plastic on. Any of the better dealers who carry both Husaberg and KTM could advise you as to which models of Husaberg or KTM the 2012 TE translucent white tank is compatible with. If you want the grey tone 2011 TE fuel tank and that specific graphics package, I'd think you'd have to source it from the UK or other european country.
You might want to ask this question over at the Husaberg specific forum, but I'm sure you'll get a similar answer. Best of luck.

While you are researching your options, keep in mind that the 2012 Husaberg TEs are essentially the 2011 KTM 250/300 XC-Ws with a few very subtle differences - one being the blue plastic. It is therefore reasonable to assume that anything that will fit on the 2011 250/300 XC-W will fit on the TEs and vice versa.
The schematic diagrams used by various on line parts sources indicate that the fuel tank on the 2010 KTM 150XC is identical to that of the '11 250 XC-W. Therefore we may conclude that the '12 Husaberg tank would fit on the 150. However, I'd certainly want the dealer to verify this logic before I handed over a large chunk of cash. They are selling you the parts and have the responsibility of telling you what will and won't work. If the first place you call, or better yet visit, doesn't want to help there is always someone else down the road who will.
Let us know if you get everything sorted out.

Fuel Tank #8120751304499 $339.99
Shrouds with decal #8120805400068C $89.99
Frankly, the price for two radiator shrouds (they call them spoilers) with the decals already applied for $90 seems reasonable to me.
Here is a link to the 2012 TE300 parts catalog that cyclebuy has on their website:
You might want to call them first to see what type of turnaround time to get the 2012 OEM parts.

After looking over the two bikes, I agree that the Husaberg radiator shrouds won't fit a KTM tank properly.
The public has been told that the 2012 TEs have the same frame as the 2011/10 KTM 250 and 300. The frame may well be the same materials and geometry, but is every bracket and tab for mounting the tank in the same exact place? I'd guess yes, but only a KTM /Berg dealer or someone who has tried installing a TE tank on a KTM would know conclusively.
Go to any of the previously mentioned websites with parts diagrams. Look up the part number for the frame of a '10 and '11 KTM 250 XC-W, I believe you will find that they have the same frame. The frame for the 150 is different. However, if you know that the tank and plastic from a 2010 250/300 KTM two stroke will fit your 150, you might assume the Husaberg tank and plastic will fit as well. But you're making an expensive assumption.
Contact a dealer by email or phone. Give the one who can accurately answer your questions and has a reasonable price your business. I'm on the east coast, so I can't recommend a dealer nearby you. Try the locate dealer function on the KTM and Husaberg websites. Malcolm Smith in CA carries both brands, but I don't know anything about them. Tasky's up in Washington has a good reputation for Husaberg, http://www.taskysmetriccycle.com.
