Two different greens?

Hey all, just got my first bike, a 2012 Ninja 300 special edition. Loving it . Anyway I've been tidying it up and have noticed that the front fairing around the headlights and the front mud guard are a darker green compared to the tank and rear cowling. Is this normal? Seems weird to me as I'd have thought if it had faded it'd get lighter, not darker.
Also, anyone know any specific paint codes for the lighter green on this particular model? The front mud guard is scratched up and I'd like to repaint it. I tried to do a search but couldn't get it working. Looks like Kawasaki have several different shades of greens over the years.

Thanks

I purchased some " Green " touch up paint for a tiny scratch on my bike. Paint match was perfect. So perfect, that I now can not find where I touched it up.

Went to my local paint shop today and they had the code (777) in their computer. Haven't tried it, but I'll get painting this weekend.
