Difference between right and left brake lever?

What is the difference between a right and left tektro cross lever? I want to get the bike island kit for my bike, but I want to run it on the right side. Is it just which side the logo is on?

Different lever contours. The cross levers SUCK upside down.

There is also a facing difference for graphics and the recesses for the cabling.
