Yep this - it's only a cosmetic difference, colour only.

Sadly there were a few accidents all close together where the pram rolled away (never forget that one in Adelaide where the bubba ended up in a lake ) so Australia changed its law to state all prams must have an easy to see red brake.

Personally I actually think the bright white stands out more than the red on my Donkey anyway!
