These are some of the upates that I am hoping the next speed twin will get; however, the inverted fork and clip-ons look a bit strange on a bobber

The riding position with that set up looks uncomfortable and frankly quite ridiculous.

I agree wholeheartedly with the last two comments.
An updated bobber really is a contradiction in terms.

I don't like that look.

How tall is the guy in the pic? Holly crap, that looks uncomfortable, and the wrong bike for him. How do you even stick a knee out when your forearms are resting on the outside of your knees? hell, how does he even do slow maneuvers and U-turns?
