I guess looking from the inside out things look different than when looking from the outside in.
We are using the term generic in different manners it would seem. Generic to me, means it is difficult to tell one from the other. In this regard, I think the Fat Bob and Street Bob are very easy to distinguish (in fact, my 4 year old son can already do this) from one another. However, line up 10 sport bikes all in blue, and I think I'd have a hard time telling one from the other. Still, you have a point that it's all about perspective. Maybe the fact that the pointy ass end on one is 1" higher than the pointy ass end on another is meaningful to afficianados. It isn't to me, which is why I find it hard to find these bikes attractive.
