MotoGP getting electric from 2019

In a sign that electric vehicles are going to enter the 'Twenties' as the big future for competitive track racing, MotoGP are launching an electric category from 2019.

Four brands have apparently signed up, and with the US-based Zero Motorcycles being the only serious electric motorcycle manufacturer at present, you would expect them to be one of them. Will any of the other current industry leaders such as Ducati, Yamaha, Honda, Suzuki, and Harley Davidson be joining them? (I'd wager Yamaha simply for their electric bike experience of the last few years)
