On Tuesday, during a routine earnings call, Harley-Davidson Inc. announced
it will produce an all-electric motorcycle.

“LiveWire” project, a prototype all-electric motorcycle.

“You’ve heard us talk about Project LiveWire,” Matt Levatich, the president
and chief executive officer of Harley-Davidson, told listeners during the
call on Tuesday. “It’s an active project we’re preparing to bring to market
within 18 months.''

If it is anything like its precursor, the new motorcycle, which was not
named, will carry a roughly 50-mile range and be able to go from 0 to 60
miles per hour in 4 seconds. By comparison, Zero’s SR hits 60mph in 3.3
