As I understand it, MBK is what used to be the old french Motobecane company. I believe the old Motobecane was sold to a german company and was renamed MBK. I don't know whether it is still in german hands or not.

The Motobecane of today is an American company that bought the name and has no connection to the old french company (they now sell Taiwanese bikes under the Motobecane name).
