I thibk the name change was over time rather than markets...I can't remember if mine is an alps or transalps, it's all rubbed off over time... but yeah, the same thing.

Transalps have the back corner of the seat cut away.

I think you may well be correct, it's an age / date thing..

As above and discussed some years back, well many years back BitD on Retrobike.
Same, I also have both and they are the same.

Though flites did vary over the years, they got heavier as more padding was added and comfort lost.
