hmmm. that's something strange. would be very unusual of there may be some differences in the kick-stand shape depending on year perhaps? mine is a 2017 original bobber also. i got mine in july of 2017, so fairly early. wondering if they may have changed it up somewhere. it could be the angle of the photo maybe that's making it look different.
i personally hate that long curved post (referred to as the "footfinder") on the stand. it helps in flicking it down as your foot catches it, but it's too big. and also when the stand is down that post sits right under the shifter so it makes it pretty much impossible to shift your bike into neutral with your foot if you want to start it up (to warm it up a little - which i like to do, while i'm putting on my helmet and gloves).
