Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa will use up the first of Honda's five allocated private test days for the 2018 MotoGP season on Monday at Jerez.
The pair, who finished second and seventh respectively in last weekend's season opener in Qatar, will be in action on the first of a planned three-day test at the Spanish Grand Prix venue.
New Honda test rider Stefan Bradl will be on hand to continue duties on Tuesday and Wednesday, which will mark his second appearance on the RC213V this year after testing at Sepang in January.
Honda is the only manufacturer that has not yet used any of its private testing allowance after it opted to withdraw Marquez and Pedrosa from last November's Jerez test.
Yamaha and Ducati both have three of their five days remaining, having both used up two in November, while Suzuki, Aprilia and KTM are entitled to an unlimited amount of private test days in 2018.
