              That's your decision. But it's not only Motorola, none of the manufacturers give promise of software support after 1 year. Atleast Motorola is giving Nougat update to a decent number of phones. Also it's Google that decides what should be the hardware specification for new OS.

                Hope the new OS does not drain the battery. Recent security update did result faster power loss.
