Seeing how product development actually works (in my game as well as the car game) a new product always ends up weighing more than they planned. Look at VT Commodore...
The isssue is that at the present time the overall facts are that VY is a comparatively mature design. VT started losing weight gradually and it has flowed on up to VY.
In comparison, BA is relatively new and has many engineering refinements available which no doubt will flow on in steps or as continual improvements later on.
By the way, lessening of weight can actually improve safety, not detract from it. This is because in a single vehicle accident the structure of the car has less energy to dissipate than for a heavy vehicle.
