Al's been fine with electric only for a year or so (CRF 230F). It takes more thinking to never leave the key on and leave the battery dead but it's alright. When the battery has gone dead it has been easy to push start.
Low power motors are way easier to tune and much more forgiving of bad tunes than hi performance motors so you can get it to where they fire first time every time way easier.
all that being said, if it had a kick start i'd probably use it all the time.
