Are there two different red colors available?

I'm ordering a red Vectrix, but there seems to be two different red colors available - bright red and dark red. Is this true?

Can anyone post a big picture of bright and dark red real world colors, please?

I think, this is a dark red, am I correct?

I have a red Vectrix and it does appear to be a deeper shade of red than that picture.

I cannot be positive because pictures can be deceptive depending on the lighting.

Based on my opinion, I think that picture is the light red. Mine seems darker to me.

Although looking at the Vectrix website, there are only 4 colors. Grey, Green, Blue and Red.

Yes, but if you look at the UK's site:

There are two different shades of red.

Interesting! Any idea why there are two reds offered?

Personally, I'm happy with my blue Vectrix, though I might have picked yellow, if that had been available. Hmmm, blue, yellow, ... maybe I should join the Strathclyde police force and ride one of these: http://www.strathclyde.police.uk/index.asp?locID=1192&docID=5026.

Our police uses white BMW motorcycles.

If I wasn't so crazy for red color, I would have picked the white one, so the other car drivers would fear me :D and drive nicely and/or slow down.

Based on the UK website shades of red, I am sure that I have the darker shade of red on my Vectrix.
I am fairly confident that mine was manufactured in Rhode Island.

This is the color of red I want:

Is this the same color as the picture above, except that it's sunlit?

I guess this is a dark red:

AndY1, the bottom picture looks like my dark shade of red. I don't think it is just the light. There is a definite difference there.

I agree. The bottom one looks like Wine Red. I don't know about the 3rd one, but I like the first and the second most. Maybe the 3rd one is the same color as the first and second, just the lighting is different.
