According to the Honda PR, the ‘high-strength Symmetrically Coupled Phase-shift crankshaft, utilizes a 28-degree crankpin offset in its 76-degree V-configuration. As a result the engine has ‘perfect primary balance’ and subsequently does not use a counter balancer. This adds to the reduced overall weight - 2010 Honda VFR1200F First Ride

Honda obviously has a lot of technical know how; I think they often
are trying to impress by incorporating every new gizmo they can think of. But in the end, does it really improve the overall motorcycle?
I like the simplicity of a Ducati twin with a trellis frame that makes
for space to work on the bike. And things like high end suspension,
and something that weighs under 500 pounds, much less the 600+ pound
VFR1200. It will probably make a good touring bike, but I really
don't consider any bike over 600 pounds in the "sport" category.
Of course, this is just my opinion; your mileage may very...
