Question is in the title.

I've heard it pronounced 'Moto gut-see', with the 'gut' pronouncecd like 'put'.

Some people say 'Moto Guz-zee'

Personally I prefer the first, but which is correct?

Neither, it's moo-TOE goo-ZEYE (like eyeball)


If you can keep your head when all around are losing theirs, it's just possible you haven't grasped the situation.

I'm only joking, I haven't a clue.

Looking at it, I'm tempted to say "moe-ta GUZZ-ee", but, when thinking about the pronounciation of words such as "Gucci" and "pizza", I would imagine that "moe-toe GOOT-see" would be pretty damn close.

If you can keep your head when all around are losing theirs, it's just possible you haven't grasped the situation.

I knew someone who pronounced it:

Moto Gucci

He said that was how the Italians pronounced it.

However, Italians I have met, and in particular Moto Guzzi mechanics say:

"Moto Gootzi"

The "oo" of "Moto" being echoed in the "oo" of "Goo", and the whole thing being said with a stuccato rhytm:

MoTo GooTsi.



I'm REVIN the guts out of it!
