pink instrument bar light

on startup the bar with speed, fuel, temp etc
was a solid pink or light red..
never seen this before on this or cbr250r..
dont recall other unusual warning lights etc..
[night but] looked down to see oil but low..
rode home 10 - 15mins taking it easy..
stayed pink/red, and when switched on again..
[1 temp bar after start, two more on way
home, after 90mins since last ride]
checked oil again once secured etc,
oil there, if low..

checked owners manual, nothing
in obvious sections..

anyone recognise this pink backlight ?

The 250R instrument came with a Blue colored backlight...

thanks mike,, so this is what, normal colour
but i perceive it as grey in daylight [?]

after going thru manual and mentioning it to
no1 son [hondaman] the 'red alert' subsided,
especially as it started up grey before and after
this mornings run into yoga and back..

curious now tho, as to where that pink/red
lies, in the light or in brains visual center
and/or relative to dark/light - day/night...

The CBR250R's Blue backlighting is also not visible in daylight, it too appears grey.

checking for night blindness etc info came across
this very,, in-depth article with numerous references
to specifics etc, which seems to imply that red/blue
do have certain potentials relative to potentials for
recovering night sight, or not, etc..

I have great difficulty reading red illuminated letters and numbers on dashboards when it's dark. I can't seem to focus.

Is their nothing in the manual to adjust the dash lights to brighten them? As sold mine I can't check - sorry.

Unlike most cars, there is no dimming adjustment on the CBR's... not sure if there are other motorcycles which have this feature.

My MT 03 only has the gear shift indicator light that can be brightened, you can also set it between 7000rpm to max 13500rpm at each 500rpm. Although it also tells you what gear you are in I generally only change by the sound of the engine, but a nice gizmo to have.
