Is it worth it?

Ive been looking for a 125 or 150cc bike for a little bit of everything, city, country, and travelling here in mxico and latin america (if I could find a 200cc or 250cc used in good condition and cheap Id buy it). Im conflicted now, because I dont know if its worth it to wait and look more for a used bike like the Honda NXR150 bros and buy it for around $2,800usd or so, or buy a new bike that is not quite doble purpose for around $2,000usd.

(Prices are in mxn pesos, $20,000 pesos is around $1,700 usd)
The new bikes Ive been looking at are:

Honda CL 150 Cargo - ($22,000) Bad fuel milage, but very durable and 11.3hp
Honda CGL 125 TOOL -($15,000) Cheap!! But not much power (9.7hp)
Yamaha YBR 125 (many versiones) - (depensd on the version but around $22,000 a $26,000) They lowered the hp to 9.7 so a little weak aswell.
Suzuki gn125 - ($22,000) Good fuel milage, more power than others 12.5hp...but rims are solid and a bit smaller than other bikes
Suzuki en125-2a -($23,000) Good fuel milage, 12hp, better brakes (I was told??) than the en125-hu
Suzuki en125-hu -($22,000) Good fuel milage, spoked rims, carrier rack...but apparently not as good as brakes as the en125.2a...???

Also, Im worried that the suzukis parts are more difficult to find in latin america and more expensive as well...anybody know anything in regards to this?

Or I could buy the Honda XR125L new for $29,000 pesos (around $2,600 or so usd) however Ive heard that this bike sorely lacks power, so being around $700usd more than most the others Im not sure if its worth it.
