The financial sibbling of the BA II PLUS, the TI-68 got the same changes. 

In some European countries the calculator was sold as Texas Instruments BS II (Business Scientific 2).

In 2000 the calculator got in some countries a more stylish housing, it seems that this calculator will last in France more than a decade. View the new edition here.
