Do you mean more reliable or more maintenance free.

Electronic Ignition is more maintenance free...simply because you really can't do anything to it.

Points are more reliable...because I can fix them roadside and get going again. Try that with an electonic ignition module that has failed.

And in both cases, they have coils, which can fail no matter what system you have.

The last thing I'd want is "high tech" when riding in really remote areas.
