    I read an article where they described the Yamaha FJ-09 as "almost Supermoto like". If you considered the Versys, the FJ may work.

    Get the Squeeze her own bike. That'll open up your options a lot.

    Correct answer, right there --^

    Then you can start shopping for motorcycles with the word, "Monoposto" in the name...

    Not all women are comfortable riding their own bike.

    I would look into a sidecar rig if it were me.

    Can tour, is a triple

    And coming from my cb500 didn't feel it was too wide.

    While the Weestrom has a huge tank and for which I get over 500 km highway (a record 687 km to empty - don't ask!) before refueling, the seat tapers down and the knees do not hug the wider sides of the tank. The first generation Versys has a very narrow profile and narrow tank which might work for you also. Not sure about the new Versys'sss.....

    I ride an FJ09

    I can offer an opinion that it is not overly narrow between the legs
    of course OP can try it, but it's probably not going to work for him
    pillion seat is also a poor choice for dedicated 2-up riding
