I reckon it's just a picture of some dude out riding on a bike he's modded himself.
The top box, mounting and loom running towards the engine are identical to the set up showing how they test bikes on display at the Triumph Visitor Centre, so it looks to be genuine Triumph.

Of course, the point of testing a bike is to determine if it should be released and is fit for release so it's quite possible that this may never appear at the dealership (though using the same logic, it may well do)

If anything looking like that appears at a dealership itíll be sitting there a long time.

Obviously from the picture, they are to help with the off road performance.

I can’t imagine that will actually be the new Bobber. Looks awkward

A lot of wires running into that top box. Looks to my eyes to be a data acquisition rig on a test mule platform built on a bobber. You're guess is a good as mine as to what is actually being tested. From the looks of those forks they are probably testing several different items that might be destined for several different bikes.
