Detunning a bike with Power Commander

Is it possible, through the use of a PC, to detune a bike to where it makes less power (Lets say 20hp less) without damaging the engine...?

Reason for the question: I am getting myself a new bike in the spring and my wife wants mine, she is going for her license in April. I don't mind giving her the GSXR600 but I would fell more comfortable if the bike was less powerful for the first few months.

I know it's too much of a bike for her, I started with this bike. If can cannot do it, then I will have to look for another bike for her and keep the 600 for myself.

I don't know the limitations of computerized tuning, but if you can retard the ignition timing enough you'll dramatically lower the power output.
