All other things equal, would you purchase a 2017 Recon 250 with or without Electronic Shifting? I have durability concerns about the ES. ATV will be lightly used and meticulously maintained.

Thanks.

I agree manual foot shift simple answer to WHy is, less parts to fail, read/search any honda atv tread and you will find thousands of treads about E shift issue's
when they work there great, when they don't??
facts are simple
its more parts to up keep
if you stay on top of PM's on e shifts, there more likely to NOT have issue's
but there are some that still do
yet you seldom ever read of foot shift issue's

time proven STRONG long lasting design over E shifts! IMO

also if buying for a KID, or anyone to be honest
it will teach them a lot about hand eye foot coordination that only helps them in life IMO too!
