I thought it should be Quale motocicletta è la tua.

I didn't, but now I've read your comment I wonder why the article isn't needed!

This is a very valid question in Italy:

This photo is from Roma, but Firenze was the same. People would see a full line of motorbikes, get off of theirs, push two apart, then stuff their bike in between-- often having to climb over the back of the bike to get off/ out!!

why is "Which is your motorbike"? not acceptable?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/robert0n

I think it should be.

I have the same question.

What is the difference between "which is your motorcycle " and " which motorcycle is yours "

I think that would be "qual è la tua motocicletta?" vs. "quale motocicletta è tua?"

They're functionally the same.

Motobike and motocycle are the same thing!!!!

Moto or Motor? Not too many people call them motobikes (or motocycles) where I'm from...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/robert0n

I agree, I've submitted a request for a fix.

it's correct, but not used. Better: Qual è la tua moto? or Quale moto è la tua? Nobody today says "motocicletta", but my grandfather!
