In a teaser trailer released by Harley-Davidson Wednesday, a motorcycle is seen zooming down U.S. Route 66—except there’s none of the usual rumble of a gas-powered bike.

Closing with the text “6.19.14,” the video suggests that the old-school motorcycle manufacturer, which has yet to make an electric motorcycle, is only a day away from unveiling its newest bike.

Harley-Davidson was one of only two major U.S. motorcycle manufacturers to survive the Great Depression.
