It's missing something even closer to my /5 heart, an integrated headlight bucket gauge cluster. Now how retro cool would that be.

+1 and then some

Because they are catering to the riders that don't trust newfangled ideas. Oh wait, that describes an Airhead Owner...( tongue firmly planted in cheek )

And it would be out in the open for the world to see not looking as cool as that telescopic fork that was invented quite some time ago.
I would prefer a Telelever myself.

How can thaqt be considered retro?
And the movie, populated by hipsters on fat-knobby bikes? What was that about?

Underwhelmed

Is this what became of the Roland Sands R90S concept bike?

Yup. This concept has been in sketches for years now. Looks like they stayed close to the concept:
