Those two bikes make quite a pair. Back in 1993 I bought my first VFR, a '91 red w/gold wheels and grey seat. And soon after my pal Doug bought a red 907ie just like the one in your photo. An awful lot of water under the bridge since then.

The 906 Paso is a 1990 model and the VFR750 1991. they are for all intents and purposes the same age. That said the Honda is the tour de force of technology while the Paso is a different animal altogether, a 900cc v-twin with a desmo valve system. Both great bikes in their own way. Purchased the VFR as I was going to do a bit of work on the Paso. I enjoyed riding the VFR that much ended up restoring it, buying a Gen 8 and a VF1000R... go figure? 🙄😀

I would be hard pressed to find two nicer looking bikes in the same Photo, maybe a 1997 Ducati 750 SuperSport and my 4th Gen with white wheels would come close. Both in red of course. My 91 3rd Gen in England had a black saddle as the few I have seen in the US, so I wonder what market that was built for? Or was there an option for seat color? .Either way, great all round bikes. Kudo's on the VF1000R, a zero speed threat to ones health and safety, but a surprisingly capable sport tourer, 7,800 miles from Maine to Calf and back in 2012 and I would do it again in a heartbeat.

The VFR came with the red seat. The seat cowl also has the same red cover.  I do like the red seat and have recovered the Paso seat as well in a lightly darker red. I did not have a Paso or VFR back in the day. Instead I had a couple of VF1000F 's in the late eighties/early 90's. A blue and white one and a red and black one. Always regretted selling them, but getting married and having to buy the new wife a car saw to that. I later brought a CBR1000F new in 1995, still have it. The Paso is the bike I always wanted when I was younger, the VFR750 is the bike I should have wanted and brought. Recently picked up a VF1000R 1984 model to restore. needs quick a bit of work on the fairings and will need a respray including the frame. that said the motor has just 25,000km on it and the carbs have been rebuilt, so not all bad. I recently had the VF1000R parked next to the VFR800 2015, it's a similar comparison for me. Thanks for the comments

The VF1000R needs a bit or work. Will most likely strip it completely, re-spray the fairing and frame, and powder coat all the black bits. it's a low km bike and worth the effort to me. When I had my VF1000F's always looked upon the R's with a bit of envy.
