That is an enormously large question. They are completely different bikes. In what way are you thinking specifically?

Specifically speaking, just which bike would be a better buy in terms of reliability/quality, and fun per dollar amount. They both seem like very very identical bikes and I want to know what makes them different from each other.

Didn't even think the question was even close to being like that.

The biggest thing which might interest you is the fact the Z125 is available in either a manual or automatic transmission.

Only the Pro model is coming to North America. 4-spd. manual tarnsmission.
Standard model has the CVT automatic, for Asian market only at this time.

They're so similar to each other, I'd say it comes down to styling (which one you like the looks of better) and whether you are willing to wait for aftermarket parts & accessories to be available for the Z125. That will take a while.

If you want to do a build with lots of mods right away, including possibly a Big Bore Kit, the Grom would be the logical choice. There are over 2,000 parts/accessories available already for the Grom. So far, Japan.webike.net has 3 (that's right, 3!) parts for the Z125. An LED tail light, a fender eliminator and a set of replacement handlebars.

Also, Z125 will be $2,999 USD. Grom will be at least $3,199 USD, maybe more for 2017 model.

Thanks for the info here. I'm thinking on waiting for the Z125 now.

Yes, I have a 2015 Grom. Photos soon......It's snowing today here in Colorado.
I bet you some guys still manage to get out and ride in those conditions, always happen to spot at least one person, never fails.

Are you at least looking into accessories and modifications you want to get for your Grom? That's at least something you can take action on and do right now.

That Grom does look cool, and I can see the Z125 taking to a treatment like that quite nicely as well. Amazing job.
