How do you pronounce Moto Guzzi?

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)

Never heard that one before.Cheers.

does it matter? Moe-Toe Guz-Zee is how i pronouce it anyway.if its wrong, no matter, it's not like i'm an Itie now izzit

And the Italians, what about them?Viffer would know.

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.

I knew someone who pronounced it:Moto GucciHe 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.

Don't all rush to thank me at once.
