You should find one to sit on and try out.
Mine is a 1200 but I can easily get both feet flat on the ground at a stop.
I am only about 6 cm taller, with 73-74 cm inseam, which I think is a more important measurement in this case.
Skip the 696 go one or two generations earlier. The prior monsters (620,695,750,800,s2r,900,1000) all could use a lowered link in the rear and many came adjustable from the factory. The 620 monsters had a shorter seat and a fixed ride height rod in the rear but it is easily swapped for an adjustable version. The 696 version uses a low tech rear suspension that has no linkage so you would need a shorter shock.
A 620/750 or s2r800 would make a fine bike for her.
