New member with brake problems

Just bought an 06 Speed Triple w/ 19.5k miles on it. Got a crummy price and I just found out that there is a problem with the brakes. I do not feel any pulsating in the lever, but what I do feel is in the actual braking of the bike itself. It's like it brakes then lets go brakes then lets go. Makes for a really uncomfortable ride when braking at low speeds. I haven't braked hard at speeds because I'm scared I'll simply end up lowsiding or something. Is this typical of a warped rotor? I'm going to clean the hell out of the rotors and "bobbins" whatever those are, and see if that helps, but as of right now I'm very dissapointed! New rotors are pricey! Thanks to anyone who can help.
