I suppose it's a marketing choice since "lite" might scare customers away who would otherwise want to avoid the "faux disgrace" of not using what their favorite pros are using.
Among some circles, "Team" already has the unintended connotation of being a code word for "chick racquet". People on this forum have even posted that they wanted to remove the word "Team" from their racquet for that reason!
