Hurtling towards turn one on the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, the flickering 228 on the 5.5-inch full colour TFT screen of the RS barely registers as I try to keep my head out of the wind blast. There were times when I was afraid that the chin bar of my helmet would dig a hole in the 17.4-litre petrol tank. And that perhaps is the single most significant flaw of this bike, if you take it for a track day. I couldn’t have wished harder for some sort of protection from the buffeting, because in every other aspect the Triumph’s new Street Triple 765 RS is almost perfect.
