Like is it a servicability thing or soley air vs coil??
I believe you can get both in solo air or coil. Biggest difference is the tora's used to have some reliability problems, they may have fixed that with the XC32. Maybe just the biggest difference now is weight, but the recon is probably still built a little better.
The gap from the recon to the xc32 may be smaller than when it was the Tora. You probably can find some comparisons on MTBR of people that have used both.
