Interesting set up, but I can't see how it can have any influence on roll centre, as it is the suspension pivot points that determine this, not the springing arrangement, and the back pivot points appear to be standard K bike, I assume the front is a leading link of some sort.
The tyre offset outwards would have much more of an affect on stability than the torsion bars.
