But the comparison is in Chinese and there are no subs. You can see them side by side and I can understand a bit of it.

Gist of what I got:
-very similar CC
-Z125 doesn't need a clutch lever but ti still has the foot shifter is still there.
-Z125, around 6000rpm can hit 70mph, so a bit higher speed
-Honda, around 6000rpm gets 65mph
-MSX125 feels like it accelerates from a stop a bit faster

-Ergonomics
-Honda, you're sitting a bit straighter with the higer handlebars and the bars lean towards you a bit
-Z125, the handlebars are a bit lower and straighter so you lean forward just the slightest bit

-suspension
-Z125 is stiffer and better for higher speeds
-honda has softer suspension, more comfy on roads at average speed

They're honestly very close in performance and I think it'll be down to which brand and look someone prefers.

Is it just me or does the msx125 tank look like it's smaller than the Z125?

Yea, and it could be. It also might just be shaped different so that the bottom is wider and holds more of the gasoline there.
