@FangShui would most likely know more than me about handlebars.

Any 7/8" bar should fit with the stock bar clamps. All Renthal and ProTaper bars should work. And Superbike bars would work, too.

Note that any of these will have a shorter rise, making the bars lower than stock, which will require a bit of forward body lean to reach them. You can buy bar risers to compensate for that.

The Rox Bar Risers are cool in that they have different rises and you can pivot them forward and backward.

Someone will make a set of clamps that will fit Fatty Bars pretty soon.

Are the Rox Bar Risers universal or do they need to come out with one specifically for the Z125? I like the pivot aspect of the risers in case I want to lean back a bit more.

They're semi-universal. You just buy the size that matches your handlebar diameter and choose which rise you want.

Here's their fitment chart. Note that different bikes use the same part number.

They sell them for 7/8", 1", 1 1/8" and 1 1/4" bars.
If you have a specific need you can call to verify fit.

I think that a lot of this depends on what you are looking for in your handlebars. Is it just style? Is it having them higher or lower? Is it to lean forward or lean back?

Weird. Fitment chart link: Rox Speed FX | Motorcycle Bar Riser Fitment Chart | BMW, HONDA, YAMAHA

Thinking the Z125 would use the 7/8" but this is purely from looking at what the Grom uses.
