In what should be an inspiration to all of us, an 85 year old Hungarian man has just taken delivery of his new motorcycle, a Ducati 1199 Panigale S.
Mathyas Balint is no stranger to Ducati, after all he already owns a Ducati 1098R. Apparently Balint took an instant like to the looks of the Panigale after seeing the photos released from the EICMA show in Milan and rushed out to order one.
The ex racer is still old school in many ways – he dislikes ABS since modern brakes are already so much better than the ones he used to contend with back in the day! Mathyas you join 83 year old Isle of Man racer Ted Fenwick on our hero list.
