There have been many films based on Richard Connell's 1924 story, "The Most Dangerous Game", from 1932 to the present. The buggies/motorbikes in this one would seem to make it relatively recent, so I'm going to guess that you're thinking of Surviving the Game (1994). This user review describes the plot in some detail; it seems to coincide with what the ...

Your recollection matches a section of the IMDb synopsis for House (1986).

My first thought was Cloak & Dagger, starring Dabney Coleman. It somewhat fits the profile, with an 11-year-old boy caught up in espionage, and his "savior/partner" is an imaginary guy. At the end, he meets his real dad in an airport, if memory serves me correctly.
