Remember that Japanese study that said motorcycle riding helps brain stimulation, memory and had positive effect on mental and emotional health and leads to smart ageing? Well, this 85-year old Hungarian that goes by the name of Mathyas Balint and has a distant past in racing, is the living proof and confirms that age is just a state of mind, as he recently picked up his brand new Ducati 1199S Panigale.
Balint fell immediately head over heels in love with the Panigale after seeing the first published images released at the EICMA last year, and was the first person to order the new model at his local dealership, MotoGroup.
When he received the new bike Balint apparently declared that he couldn’t wait to ride the machine - he already owns and regularly rides a 1098R - but admitted he isn’t a big fan of ABS because when he started riding braking systems were almost non existent, and that he is already satisfied with modern day ones.
