If you have done NOTHING since the last time you rode it...there is not much it could be. I guess I'd dump the fuel (into my car) and drain the carb through the main jet access plug on the underside of the carb's float bowl.
Maybe pull the air filter and check it out. I had a family of mice move into my Ninja's airbox, and I sucked the nest into my carb...

Maybe your accelerator pump is clogged? That would be more of a bad response/flat spot situation as opposed to a "bike is to slow" though.
I have also had gas not much older than one month make a bike run poorly.

After putting the carb back on (it's not that hard a job)I took it out and just ran the piss out of it. It came back to life but is still a little rich. If you have a black plug, I'd suggest dropping the needle, it worked for me.

I may try to empty the tank or " run the piss" out of it.
Any other suggestions wouldn't hurt!!!!

Check the air cleaner, like Kevin suggested, and check your exhaust (pull the plug - and leave it off if you can stand the increased noise) and make sure there isn't something blocking it.
Just the thoughts of a deranged mind......
