In my humble opinion would have had more sense vertically mirrored with the blu part in red, but again the previous look and colors were great!
In my country we say: don't change the team that win

Why not all red on the left and black on the right, why reinvent the wheel?

I would argue that the dominant color here is black.

I'd argue that you're looking through rose-colored glasses! Black is not a color.
Seriously, I'd bet for the overwhelming majority of people the eye is drawn to the blue first.
For what it's worth North is close to making the same mistake with the Click bar but at least the bright dominate color is on the left and has a bright patch of red.

It would be more pleasing to the eye if the red side of the bar followed the same format as the blue side.
(Red with white dots and red bar ends) Looks to be an imbalance.
However, as long as you know that blue is the right side of the bar then all should be well.

I don't even look at the Color of my bar. I just hook it up to the kite and go sometime red on the left sometimes on the right I just pull on the kite until it turns don't think I ever even look at the bar or line colors just make sure it's hooked up and not tangled and rude peeps.

I was thinking the same.
I just pull the bar and than feel what is happening.

I was out the other day and had my bar rigged backwards ( flipped) and I didn't notice till I finished my session and was rolling up my lines. I have a Core bar with yellow on the left...

Apart from being a Naish bar, the graphics look good:
